Corinna Edwards-Colledge was born in Chorlton-cum-Hardy in Manchester, and spent much of her childhood reading fantasy books and exploring the local countryside fueled by Kendal Mint Cake. Unsurprisingly a love of the natural world and a hint of mystery is something that often appears in her novels.
Her passion for writing started when she won a poetry competition at the tender age of seven. Since then she has worked as a journalist, written an anthology of poetry, a screenplay and three novels (The Soul Room, Return of the Morrigan and The Call). She studied English and Media at the University of Sussex and has worked in kids playschemes, run volunteering organisations, managed the newsroom for a local TV news programme, and trodden the boards, in a play written by and starring the late Brian Behan. For the last thirteen years she has worked in local government, delivering schemes that encourage people to live more active lives.
She lives in Brighton in a loving if sometimes hectic menagerie including her husband, kids, step-kids and pets. As well as writing, she loves cooking very hot curries, going on long walks and sitting in cosy pubs, though not necessarily all in one day!
