Abby Davies was born in Macclesfield in 1984. She grew up in Bedfordshire in a seventeenth century cottage near Flitton Moor and started writing ‘thrillers’ when she was seven years old.
After reading English Literature at Sheffield University and training to be an English teacher, she competed in national Modern Jive competitions (featuring on the podium several times), and wrote novels in her free time.
In 2012 she took a break from teaching and gained a Creative Writing MA from Nottingham Trent University. She has taught at both state and independent schools, including Jilly Cooper’s and Minnette Walter’s old school in Salisbury. She was shortlisted for the Mslexia Novel Competition in 2018 and longlisted for the Blue Pencil Agency First Novel Award in 2019. Her interest in the human mind inspired her to write Mother Loves Me which will be published by HarperCollins in 2020.
She lives in Wiltshire with her husband, daughter and two cocker spaniels.
