Karin Mitchell is a South African journalist-turned-writer. She used to dodge rubber bullets and flying bricks in protests, where she tried to understand and establish concerns amongst South Africans. She also spent years in the courts, reporting on both high profile, and forgotten trials. One of those forgotten trials, known as the Boeremag Trial, became the topic of her first manuscript. The case was the country’s first high treason trial in a post-Apartheid South Africa. She has been talking to one of the alleged masterminds in prison for the past six years. Spending a year to research and write the book, she has just started with the agent querying process. With the book now written, she is happy to have her creative side run wild and is thinking of future fiction projects. She has just written her first short story and has fallen madly in love with the ease she is able to write short stories. She is also in the conceptual stages of writing a children’s book, inspired by the raw and remote area she now lives in – where wild animals outnumber humans. She spends her time traveling across South Africa with her photographer husband, and will launch travel blog mid-2018 in which she pens down their adventures.
