Cressy was born in South East London surrounded by books and with a cat named after Lawrence of Arabia. She studied English at the University of East Anglia and now lives in Norwich with her husband David. When she isn't writing, Cressy spends her spare time reading, returning to London or exploring the beautiful Norfolk coastline.
