Joyce Kotze grew up in Namibia, studied in Cape Town and worked as a radiographer on the conflict-torn borders of Southern Africa. The Anglo-Boer War has always been of interest to her as her grandfathers fought on opposite sides. Two great-uncles died in WWI and her father served as an 18 year-old in WW II. Her debut novel, The Runaway Horses was published in 2015 and translated into Afrikaans in 2017. Beyond Forgiveness will be published in 2018 and is about the 1914 Rebellion and South Africans in WWI.
