About the Author

Anna Bailey was born in 1995 and grew up in Gloucestershire, before going on to study creative writing at Bath Spa University.

In 2018, she returned to the UK and enrolled on a writing course with Curtis Brown Creative, where she completed her first novel, inspired by her experience of small-town America. She lives in France.
