Essie Fox has written three Gothic Victorian novels published by Orion Books. They are: The Somnambulist, Elijah's Mermaid, and The Goddess and the Thief.
In November 2016 Orion will also be publishing The Last Days of Leda Grey, an eerily mysterious novel in which an old woman who lives alone in a decaying cliff top house remembers her youth in silent films - and the dangerous obsessions that led to her being abandoned for more than half a century.
Essie Fox was born and raised in Herefordshire. After studying English Literature at Sheffield University she came to work in London, first for the Telegraph Sunday Magazine and then for the book publishers, George, Allen & Unwin. A change of career then came about when Essie became a commercial designer - a passion that lasted twenty years until she began to write instead.
Essie now divides her time between Bow in East London, and Windsor. She is also a regular visitor to her childhood home of Herefordshire.
