Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing, graduating in 2009 with first class honours. She wrote her first novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.

If that rare thing happens, I had great advice from my creative writing lecturer once, who said to force myself to write something, anything, even if it was gibberish, just so the page in front of me wouldn't be blank and then the rest would come. He said there is nothing more likely to sustain writer's block than the terrifying sight of a blank page coupled with a blank brain! (less)

“What’s the point in treating people so horribly? Life is complicated and everyone has their reasons for the way they behave. Usually, if you give someone a chance, you’ll see it for yourself and then you can understand it better. Obviously, there are people who are just horrible and they’re beyond saving, but I find it’s not as many as you might think.”
Tilly Tennant, A Very Vintage Christmas

“You should never have to feel stupid sharing the things that matter to you with the people you love. And you should never have to apologise for them.”
Tilly Tennant, A Very Vintage Christmas

“She was in the only place she wanted to be right now.
She was home.”
Tilly Tennant, The Christmas Wish
