Elisabeths Lists.jpg

In my own words


My book, Elisabeth's Lists: A Family Story, will be published by Granta on March 1st 2018. Described as 'both a vivid memoir and a moving study of the familial threads that bind us, even beyond death', it tells the story of my long-lost grandmother's life through a book of handwritten lists she left behind. You can pre-order the book here and here.

I will be speaking at various events during the year, including Granta Birth of the Book which explores the journey from initial book idea to publication with my agent and editor, and at the Aye Write! Festival in Glasgow on March 17th talking about the everyday lives of extraordinary women with Lucy Moore (author of Lady Fanshawe's Receipt Book).

My work has appeared in various publications, including the Guardian, EasyLiving magazine, Mail on Sunday YOU magazine, Co-operative Food magazine,  EasyJet magazine and Green Parent magazine, amongst others. A piece I wrote and performed at a local story cabaret night, about the Museum of Broken Relationships, can be found here. A recent feature for YOU magazine on lists and the inspiration behind my book is here.
