Harriet Evans is the author of four previous novels, Going Home, A Hopeless Romantic, The Love of Her Life and I Remember You all of which were bestsellers. She lives in London and now writes full time, having given up her job to do so.
Harriet Evans grew up in London. As a child she loved reading and making up stories. The career in musical theatre she'd always dreamed of never materialised for whatever reason, and so she ended up at Bristol University where she read Classical Studies. In her twenties she was lucky enough to get a job as a secretary at a publishing house and instantly realised working with books was what she'd always wanted to do. She was a fiction editor for ten happy years but left in 2009 to write full-time, making up stories all day.
Harriet still lives in London with her family. She likes old films, property websites, sloe gin cocktails, feminism and Bombay Mix, not in that order.
