Sara-Jayne King is a South African journalist, radio presenter (Cape Talk) and now author, whose career spans more than decade and has taken her across the globe in search of extraordinary people with remarkable stories. The result of an illegal affair between a white British woman and black South African man during apartheid, King’s own story as a transracial adoptee, secreted out of South Africa to England in the early eighties, forms the basis for her debut book, a memoir, Killing Karoline.

She is passionate about issues relating to identity, race, adoption, mental health and addiction.
