Danila Botha

Fiction author based in Toronto.

I am a fiction author based in Toronto. I was born in South Africa, and I’ve also lived in Israel and in Halifax, Nova Scotia. My first novel, Too Much on the Inside was published in June 2015 by Quattro Books. My first book, a collection of short stories called Got No Secrets was published in 2010 by Tightrope Books. I’ve also guest-edited the National Post’s “The Afterword,” and my short stories have appeared in Broken Pencil’s fiction issue, Douglas Glover’s Numero Cinq Magazine, Joyland, The Fix, and the Adroit Journal.
