ssie Fox is the author of The Somnambulist and Elijah’s Mermaid, both of which
are dark Victorian novels.
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.
Essie also writes the popular blog:
The Virtual Victorian.
