Poppy Alexander

Poppy Alexander wrote her first book when she was five. There was a long gap in her writing career while she was at school, and after studying classical music at university she decided the world of music was better off without her and took up writing instead. She takes an anthropological interest in family, friends and life in her West Sussex village (think The Archers crossed with Twin Peaks) where she lives with her husband, children and various other pets.

Poppy’s first novel, 25 Days in December, was published in the UK by Orion and the US by William Morrow, and has been translated into several languages. Her second, The Littlest Library, and her third will also be published by Orion in 2021. She has also published two novels with Allison & Busby as Rosie Howard, The Homecoming and The Vintage Year.
