Cathy Park Kelly is a writer based in Cape Town, South Africa. Her first book, Inside Outside, a memoir of teaching juvenile offenders in Johannesburg, was quoted extensively by the (then) South African Minister of Correctional Services in a speech. This is the closest she’s ever gotten to Parliament. She has recently completed her second book, an autobiographical novel. She is also an entrepreneur who sells 3D design software to support her writing workshop addiction. On good days she writes, makes some sales and plays on the trampoline with her son. On difficult days, she bites her nails and spends far too long on Facebook.
