Kiare
Ladner

As a child, Kiare Ladner wanted to live on a farm, run an orphanage and be on stage. As an adult, she found herself working for academics, with prisoners and on nightshifts. 

Her short stories have been published in South Africa, where she grew up, and the UK, where she lives now. Nightshift, her debut novel, will be published by Picador in 2019.
