Joma West

Joma West

Joma West was born in London in 1986. Months later she was moved to Zambia and she hasn’t stopped moving ever since. Travelling through Africa, Scotland, China, Italy and Japan, stories were her natural companions. At fifteen, she began making up her own stories to tell her school friends and soon she was writing them all down. She studied English Language and Literature at the University of Glasgow and then took up teaching for a while, because that was a grown-up job.
