Eve Ainsworth

Eve Ainsworth always dreamed of being a writer and spent most of her childhood telling stories to herself in her back garden (leading her neighbours to decide she was ‘eccentric’). She used to work in a large secondary school, supporting teenagers with their emotional and behavioural issues, whilst also concentrating on her writing. Above everything else she has never given up on her writing dream, despite being bitten by the self-doubt bug more times than can be healthy.

Her first Young Adult Novel, Seven Days, was published by Scholastic in Feb 2015. She was nominated for the Cilip Carnegie Medal 2016 and has won various regional awards including the Wandsworth Teen Award and the Dudley Teen Prize. Her second YA Novel Crush was published by Scholastic in March 2016, followed by Damage in 2017 and Tender, which was published by Scholastic in March 2018.

Eve lives in West Sussex with her husband and two crazy children.
