We would like to welcome Eva Jordan to the Leeds singing!
I am a published short story writer with a degree in English and History. I live in a small town in Cambridgeshire with my partner Steve and three of our four children who are a constant source of inspiration – they are all teenagers, need I say more! My career has been varied, including working in a Women’s Refuge and more recently at the city library. However storytelling through the art of writing is my true passion.
As well as writing, I love music and film and of course I love to read, both fiction and non-fiction. Many writers have inspired me from Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and Joseph Conrad to Angela Carter, Sue Townsend, Stephen King—and recently Anna McPartlin, Gillian Flynn and Louise Doughty. I enjoy stories that force the reader to observe the daily interactions of people with one another set against the social complexities of everyday life, be that through crime, love or comedy.
It is the women in my life, including my mother, daughters and good friends that have inspired me to write my debut novel 183 TIMES A YEAR. A modern day exploration of domestic love, hate, strength and friendship set amongst the thorny realities of today’s divided and extended families.
