Evie Grace was born in Kent, and one of her earliest memories is of picking cherries with her grandfather who managed a fruit farm near Selling. Holidays spent with her family in the Kent countryside and daytrips to the seaside town of Margate, inspired her to write Hannah’s story. She loves reading about the Victorian era, and her research for The Seaside Angel included the history of using leeches in medicine and the invention of the bathing machine. Evie now lives in deepest, darkest Devon with her partner. She has a son and daughter.
