Sally Partridge's fifth novel for young adults is titled 'Mine'. She opens up about her writing process and journey as an author.

Cape Town-based novelist Sally Partridge says she has always been passionate about writing.

The young adult author says she's had an active imagination and love for storytelling for as long as she can remember.

Mine is the title of Partridge’s fifth novel for young adults. It tells the story of Finley September and Kayla Murphy, two teens who are in love and trying to make sense of their lives in the Mother City.

Partridge explains that writing about young people inspires so many possibilities.

She reflects her journey as a novelist, her latest book, writing process, and her various literary accolades.

Ever since I was a child, I used to make up stories. I had a huge group of imaginary friends.

Sally Partridge, author

I don't feel like I write for young people, as much as I write about them.

Sally Partridge, author

Everyone has a story in them, I believe.

Sally Partridge, author

I used to make up stories on road-trips and write in journals and the back of exam papers.

Sally Partridge, author

Writing is something I knew I wanted to do for a very long time.

Sally Partridge, author

I wanted to write honestly and with real emotion.

Sally Partridge, author
