Glenis Stott lives in Lancashire. She began writing when her daughter died in 1999. At first it served to help her with her loss but, in time, she began to enjoy writing for its own sake. She graduated in MA Creative Writing from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2006. She has had a variety of jobs, ranging from radiographer to working on a young person’s helpline. She now works as a library assistant on a casual basis which allows her to focus on her writing.
