Bestselling novelist Lesley Lokko has done an awful lot of moving around. Born to a Scottish artist and a Ghanaian surgeon, she spent the first eighteen years of her life trotting back and forth between Africa and the UK. After some dead-end jobs – kibbutz worker, cocktail waitress - she decided to knuckle down and trained as an architect, gaining her PhD in 2007.
Lesley is now the Dean of Architecture at CUNY, NYC, USA and juggles two successful careers as an academic and novelist.
