I am a British writer from a little town called Melbourne, in Derbyshire, England. My poems and short stories appear regularly in literary magazines and I have published two novels.

My work often involves characters who struggle to communicate with the people around them, and this idea forms the basis of my first novel, 'The Entire Animal', which was published in 2006 by The Waywiser Press.

My second novel, 'Thoughts of Maria', published in 2013 by Open Books, continues this theme, but also touches on wider issues such as drugs, arranged marriages and sexual obsession.

Critiquing the short stories in Emma Timpany's debut collection is not the easiest of tasks, as suggested by a reference in the endorsement notes to the 'indefinable quality' of her writing. The author Rupert Wallis attempts it by describing her stor ...more
