Author Biography

Stevie Davies was born in Salisbury, Wiltshire, though she lived in Swansea, Wales, from a week old, and spent a nomadic childhood in Egypt, Scotland, and Germany. After studying at Manchester University, she went on to lecture there, returning to Swansea in 2001. She is currently Professor of Creative Writing at Swansea University. Stevie is both a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and a Fellow of the Welsh Academy. Her novel, Awakening, published by Parthian in 2013, was her twelfth. Stevie has won numerous awards for her fiction, and has been long-listed for the Booker and Orange Prizes. Several of her books have been adapted into radio and screenplays. She writes for The Guardian and The Independent, and is a passionate sea-swimmer, cyclist and walker on the Gower.
