Brickhill, Pat

Pat BrickhillPAT BRICKHILL was born into a family of trade unionists during a dreadful storm – hence her middle name, Nomvula. Her lifelong desire to write was buried for many years beneath the demands of political activism and motherhood. However, inspired by the courage and feistiness of the women of Zimbabwe, Pat began to write short stories. She has published in Writing Still (2003), Writing Now (2005) and Women Writing Zimbabwe (2008) and, in translation, in Mazambuko(2011).
