Emily Barr worked as a journalist in London but always hankered after a quiet room and a book to write. She went travelling for a year, writing a column about it as she went and it was there that she had an idea for a novel set in the world of backpackers in Asia. 

This became BACKPACK, an adult thriller which won the WH Smith New Talent Award, and she has since written eleven more adult novels published in the UK and around the world. She lives in Cornwall with her partner and their children. THE ONE MEMORY OF FLORA BANKS is her first novel for young adults. 






  • @Edgybooks Hi! Hoping to pop in later today with @Whycraigwhy so he can sign your stock of A Christmas in Cornwall - is that ok? 🎄

    @taraking Thank you so much! I still feel protective of Flora too in a weird way. Nervous about sending her out into the world!

    @ami_with_an_i Thanks so much Ami! That's amazing.
