Gabrielle Kimm | Discover the World of the Writer
October 27, 2011
Thank you so much for inviting me onto your blog! I thought I'd give you a glimpse of my typical writing day, here in  Read More...

I was born in the north of Scotland, the third of four daughters, but I grew up in Sussex. During my late-teens and twenties, I studied and worked in Reading, London and Oxford but then moved back to Sussex, where I’ve been ever since, living between the sea and the South Downs, where big skies meet open countryside and where, if you are a seafarer (which I’m not) the tides in the creeks bossily dictate what you can do when, on a daily basis.

I have a BA in English Language and Literature, from the University of Reading, a PGCE in English from the University of Oxford, and an MA in Creative Writing (Distinction) from the University of Chichester.

I’m married with two daughters (currently twelve and sixteen) and a grown-up stepson, and we share our lives with an elderly and charming Lakeland Terrier.

I first thought I might like to be a novelist when I was a child, and my mother bought me a copy of a book called ‘The Far Distant Oxus’, written by two schoolgirls: Katharine Hull and Pamela Whitlock. (The book was re-issued by Fidra Books last year.) I was entranced by it, and it began a longing in me to write my own novel. Being only twelve, and the two authors being fourteen and fifteen, I reckoned then that I had at least two years in which to fulfil my ambition! But as my first novel hits the shelves, some thirty six years later, perhaps in hindsight I have to admit that that assessment was just a little optimistic …

My time is now divided between my family, my writing and teaching English at a local school.
