Terry-Ann Adams

Terry-Ann Adams hails from Eldorado Park. The 20-something writer spent her childhood playing with imaginary friends and writing poems, and started her writer’s journey at the tender age of 12 when she wrote a mini memoir detailing her struggle to be accepted into mainstream schooling as a person with albinism. A cultural commentator, they haven’t stopped writing since then. Terry-Ann’s work, written in English and Afrikaans, is inspired by and predominantly features Coloured people of South Africa. Their debut novel, Those Who Live In Cages, was inspired by their grandmother Frances ‘Poppie’ Adams. Their most recent book is a collection of short stories, titled White Chalk.
