About the author – SP K Mushambi (Portia)

SP K-Mushambi is happiest when she is creating. It could be writing a song, baking a yummy cake or inventing her own version of the latest dance craze (which according to reliable sources means she is doing it all wrong). She believes that literature and media that reflect our stories, our experiences and our images are essential for inspiring self-esteem and a sense of belonging.

Portia is co-founder of NanisoCreate, which publishes the Naniso & Shinga book series and Tarirai & the Safari Five picture books. Portia has conducted workshops in schools and libraries and is currently the Author in Residence at KidZania London. Her work has been recognised and nominated for the Diverse Book Awards 2020, included in CGP educational books, and brought to life through music collaborations and the forthcoming Tirivhu toy collection.

Born in England and raised in Zimbabwe, she has had a career in banking and treasury which spans over twenty years in both the corporate and humanitarian sectors. She lives in Berkshire with her husband and their two daughters.
