Wendy Clark PDF Print E-mail

Wendy Clark began writing for pleasure at the age of 8. She grew up in South Africa and studied law at the University of Natal in Durban. She qualified as an attorney but preferred criminal law, and so became a public prosecutor in 1986. After ten years in the criminal courts she was promoted to the rank of Senior Public Prosecutor at the Verulam court in 1996, and in November 2006 she took up a prosecuting post with the Directorate of Special Operations. Her experiences in the courts have often provided the inspiration for her stories.

Becoming is the story of two university friends, Alison and Marilyn, who meet again after 31 years of silence. A chance meeting later in life forces both women to revisit the dramatic incident that destroyed their friendship all those years ago. As they reconnect, both women are forced to look at parts of themselves that they have long kept hidden from themselves and other people.
The novel is a coming of age story that comes to grips with the controversial subject of Female Genital Mutilation.
