Rosamund Lupton graduated from Cambridge University in 1986. After reviewing books for The Literary Review and being invited to join the Royal Court Theatre, she won a television play competition and subsequently worked as a full-time script writer for television and film. 

Her first novel Sister was the fastest-selling title by a debut author in WH Smith’s history and was the winner of the Richard and Judy Best Debut Novel of 2011. It was also chosen for Radio 4's Book at Bedtime. Her second novel Afterwards was the second biggest-selling fiction title of 2011 as listed by The Sunday Times. Her new novel The Quality of Silence will be published in 2015.

She lives with her husband, Martin, and two children.

Like a breath of icy air, this relentless tense thriller is also a child's-eye drama like none other. Not since Miss Smilla's Feeling For Snow have I shivered like this.

I loved The Quality of Silence. It was scary, suspenseful and so exquisitely, evocatively written I often found myself shivering as if I were there in Alaska with Ruby and her mother. It was everything you want in a wonderful novel.
