Essie Fox’s new novel is The Last Days of Leda Grey. She is also the author of three Victorian Gothic novels ~ The Somnambulist, Elijah’s Mermaid, and The Goddess And The Thief.
Before taking up writing, Essie worked as an illustrator – designing greetings cards, gift wrap and decorative ceramics. Before that she worked in a Dickensian office in Bloomsbury’s Museum Street, employed as an editorial assistant by the publishers, George Allen & Unwin. So, in a way, it almost feels as if she has come full circle, returning to her very first love, which is the world of books.
Born and raised in Herefordshire, Essie now divides her time between Bow in East London and Windsor.
