F.T. Kola was born in South Africa and grew up in Australia, living in the UK and USA as an adult. She holds an MFA from the Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas at Austin. In 2015, she was shortlisted for the Caine Prize.

My novel is best described as a coming-of-age post-colonial fantasy novel, drawing on histories of witchcraft and folklore — a project I have been imagining since I was 21 years old. The novel deals with the themes of outsiderness, empire, friendship and love.
