Temi Oh wrote her first novel while studying for a BSci in Neuroscience. Her degree provided great opportunities to write and learn about topics ranging from ‘Philosophy of the Mind’ to ‘Space Physiology’. While at university, Temi founded a book-club called “Neuroscience-fiction”, where she led discussions about science-fiction books which focus on the brain. After she received an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Edinburgh, her first novel, DO YOU DREAM OF TERRA-TWO?, was published by Simon & Schuster. It won the American Library Association’s Alex Award in 2020 and was an NPR Best Book of the year in 2019. Her short stories have been published by Flametree Press and in Black Panther: Tales of Wakanda.
