About Maya Fowler

Maya Fowler

Maya Fowler was born in Cape Town in 1980. She started her schooling in Stellenbosch, but went on to spend most of her childhood in the Karoo town of Graaff-Reinet, where drought and a harsh landscape taught her to appreciate that beauty comes in many forms and resides in the tiniest things.

Maya holds a BA and an MA (Linguistics) from the University of Stellenbosch. She lives in Cape Town and works as a freelance copy editor and translator.

The Elephant in the Room is her first novel.

    Dear Maya, after meeting you over the weekend I went out and bought your book. It is such a brave (and sad) book. You really get into the head of your main character. There is no judgement, you just tell the story with such clarity - wow! No pressure now... but I look forward to your next novel, take care, Kerry
