Beryl Crosher-Segers is the author of A Darker Shade of Pale, a bestselling South African memoir about life during apartheid and Behind my Smile: The True Story of an Author, a Broken Spirit and a Healer. In her writing debut she tells the story of her determination to rise above her earlier life of inequality and injustice.

Beryl and her husband moved to Australia in the 1980s in search of a better life for themselves and their children.

Through a long-held love of the arts, she established One World Community Arts Network, a community project celebrating cultural diversity through music. Through her commitment to previously disadvantaged artists from her birth town, she started her own events company, C Major Events. Beryl’s previous experience is in administration in government. She is also impassioned by fundraising.

A highly-regarded community representative, her awards include the Celebrate Africa–Australian Captain’s Award for service to the South African Community and a Jo Wilton Memorial for Women, human rights award, from the University of Technology, Sydney.

She started dabbling in lyrics in 2020 and released her first song Colour Blind in December 2020. Other songs Grace, Pieces of Dreams and Look At Us Now followed. These songs are currently receiving high online streams. She is also currently writing her third book, a psychological thriller, Silent Tracks and completing a creative fiction work, Secret Harbour. These books are due for release in late 2023.

Beryl holds a Graduate Diploma in Creative Writing and is currently completing a Master of Arts in Creative Writing at the University of Technology, Sydney.
