about me

Alex Hay

I was born in in 1987 and grew up in London, Cambridge and Cardiff. I studied History at the University of York and later worked in magazine publishing and the charity sector. I’ve always been a voracious reader, starting on E. Nesbit and Enid Blyton and later graduating to crime and historical fiction. 

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, producing short ‘novels’ in exercise books from the age of six! In 2020 I started writing The Housekeepers, which would go on to be my debut novel published in 2023. 

I live in South East London with my husband. Do sign up to my newsletter, where I share more about what I’m thinking about and working on, including a sneak peek into the writing and publishing of my books.
