Paula Marais is the author of several books including her recent novel Shadow Self, which was longlisted for the Etisalat Prize.
She lives in Cape Town, South Africa but spends a lot of time planning where she'll travel next (Panama and the US). She also adores: quality coffee, whiskey, cookery, beautiful views and contemporary art. Paula reads anything but science fiction (sorry!)
Paula is married with two sons and an overly spoilt Jack Russell called Sunny.
She has a Master’s in Creative Writing from the University of Cape Town and is an alumnus of Bread Loaf in Vermont, the oldest and most illustrious writing conference in the US.
