Shreya “ShreSays” La Cock

Sci-Fi Fantasy Author

Shreya La Cock, artistically known as ShreSays is a Durban-born author and artist.

Now based in Cape Town, she is launching her first of many-to-come novels, with her first book Snare (the first of its trilogy).

ShreSays studied directing and script writing at AFDA, but dreamed of becoming an author, and is adamant in changing the narrative of authors in South Africa, especially fiction authors.

Dedicated to building a strong base for her work and with her background in marketing, ShreSays is aiming to revive the South African fiction novel scene.

She launched her first novel at the Durban International Book Fair on the 9th August 2023, along with a short-story of hers 'Vintage Vase' which will be added to this year's DIBF's Anthology.
