Author in Residence 2020

Louise Beech once bet her mum ten pounds that she’d be published by thirty – her first newspaper piece was published at thirty-one. But it took many years, many rejections, and four novels to finally get a book deal in 2015. Her debut, How to be Brave, got to No4 on Amazon and was a Guardian Readers’ Pick; Maria in the Moon was described as ‘quirky, darkly comic and heartfelt’ by the Sunday Mirror; The Lion Tamer Who Lost shortlisted for the Popular Romantic Novel of 2019 at the RNA Awards and longlisted for the Polari Prize 2019; Call Me Star Girl longlisted for the Guardian’s Not The Booker Prize and was Best magazine’s Best Book of the Year 2019; and I Am Dust was a Crime Monthly Pick. Louise still hasn’t given her mum the tenner.
