Louisa Leaman has a degree in art history and currently writes for the V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum), researching and writing about the museum's archived wedding dresses. It's the stories behind the exquisite dresses in their collection that sparked the idea for the novel. She lives in Epping Forest near London. When she isn't busy writing or rearing three lively children, she paints portraits, goes running and spends far too long browsing in vintage clothing shops.
