Francis Hardinge

  Frances Hardinge spent her childhood rambling around in a huge, isolated old house in Kent that "wuthered" when the wind blew and that inspired her to write strange, magical stories from an early age. She studied English at Oxford University, where she was a founding member of a writer's workshop and won a magazine short-story competition. She recently returned from a yearlong round-the-world odyssey. Fly by Night is her first novel.
