Freya Berry's picture

Freya Berry

Freya Berry has always loved stories, but it took several years as a Reuters journalist for her to realise she prefers the kind of truth that lies in fiction, not reality...That said, the inspiration for The Dictator's Wife came while reporting on the 2016 US election. 
She's fascinated by public perception and private fact; by ambiguity and the manipulation of truth; and by how our rational minds can so easily be overpowered by fear, and glamour.

Sarah Sultoon
"A litingly sharp, pacy thriller. Devilishly good."
The Sisterhood (2023)
Katherine Bradley
"A gut-wrenching, heart-breaking journey through the looking glass of 1984. Compulsively written, Julia's is a story begging to be told."
