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.
