Lorraine Gregory creates a fully fleshed-out fantasy world, full of wondrous creatures and horrible humans. The humour is earthy and the action bloody (gruesomely so, at points), and it all combines perfectly in this great read.
Daughter of an Austrian mother and an Indian father, Lorraine was raised on an East London council estate. She’s had various jobs over the years including school dinner lady, chef and restaurant manager, but always wanted to be a writer. After she started making up stories to entertain her son, she finally decided to stop being scared and follow her dream to become an author.
