Cressy was born in South East London surrounded by books and with a cat named after Lawrence of Arabia. She studied English at the University of East Anglia and now lives in Norwich with her husband David.

Cressy's favourite things - other than writing - include terrifying ghost stories, lava lamps, romantic heroes and good coffee.

When she isn't writing, Cressy spends her spare time reading, returning to London or exploring the beautiful Norfolk coastline.
