ALEX CAMPBELL announced she was going to be an author at the age of eight. But no one took much notice. Which was generally how life developed thereafter. After a nomadic education in back row daydreaming, and one English degree later, Alex moved into the world of PR and copywriting where she worked on getting other people noticed instead.
Now, living near Bath with one husband, two children, and many abandoned manuscripts, her eight-year-old self has finally been heard by the kind people at Hot Key Books. Alex’s debut novel, LAND, will be published in September 2014.
When she’s not gazing dreamily out of windows, Alex can usually be found, notebook at the ready, in dark art-house cinemas, propping up coffee bars, or worse.
