Cape Town, South Africa


Home page:

Verenia Keet has loved words, reading and writing from her earliest introduction to the alphabet. She grew up and schooled in Bonteheuwel in Cape Town and has worked in newspaper and newsroom environments in various capacities for most of her working life in Johannesburg, Cape Town, London, Karachi and Lahore.

In Pakistan, where she resides for just over ten years, Verenia has authored several ‘fact as fiction’ short stories based on community development processes, and natural and man-made disasters for the international humanitarian community focused on Pakistan. Her most recent title, From Refugee to Refugee (2002) relates the story of the efforts of a grouping of Catholic Christian humanitarian organizations to provide relief to Afghan refugees during the 2001 Allied bombardment of Afghanistan. Other titles include: In Impotent Captivity (1999) and Place of Peace (1998).
