"Maya Fowler could write a phone book and it would be a pleasure to read. This incredible talent has been used to write Patagonia, a tale inspired by the 600 Afrikaner families who left South Africa for Argentina in the early 1900s." Tiah Beautement, The Sunday Times, South Africa
Maya Fowler is also the author of The Elephant in the Room, shortlisted for the Herman Charles Bosman Award, the children's book, Tortoise Finds his Home and the youth novel, Om op Eiers te Dans. She grew up in Stellenbosch and Graaff-Reinet and now lives and works in Canada.
