This week, my guest is the fab Vered Ehsani.
Born in South Africa and raised in Canada, Vered has lived in Kenya since mid-2000. She’s the creator of the world of Mrs Beatrice Knight and the Society for Paranormals, where African Myth meets Victorian Manners. The paranormal obviously plays a big role in these books, as do quirky humour, African mythology, colonial history and tea. Society for Paranormals is a series concerning dead husbands, African legends and the search for a perfect spot of tea – though one reader has also described Mrs Knight as ‘Jane Austen meets Lara Croft’! Vered is also the author of a series of shapeshifter fantasy novels with the series title Paranormal Africa.
I’ll be chatting to Vered about the Society for Paranormals and Paranormal Africa series, and about writing in general. And, of course, she’ll be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
