Karin Mitchell is a South African journalist-turned-writer. She used to cover hundreds of current events as they were developing. Often, she would be running between protests and dodging rubber bullets and flying bricks, trying to establish and understand concerns amongst South Africans. She also spent years in the courts, reporting on high profile and forgotten trials. One of those trials, known as the Boeremag Trial, became the topic of her first manuscript. The trial was the country’s longest running and most expensive trial in its legal history, and the first high treason trial in a post-Apartheid South Africa. She has just started with the agent querying process.
