CATHY PARK KELLY is a writer who lives with her husband and son in a sunny valley in Cape Town.
She has a BA (Hons) in Applied Linguistics and has had non-fiction essays and short stories published in several South African magazines and anthologies. Her first book, Inside Outside, a memoir of teaching juvenile offenders awaiting trial, was quoted extensively by the (then) South African Minister of Correctional Services in a speech. This is the closest she has come to Parliament.
She loves how stories can crack open doors and offer seams of light in the dark.
