About the Author

SUE RAINSFORD studied History of Art at Trinity College, Dublin, and works as an arts writer. While studying Visual Arts she read Simone de Beauvoir and became fascinated by the poetic, metaphorical language around the female experience. From here emerged the book's hints of magic realism and other unique imagery. Sue Rainsford lives in Dublin. Follow Me to Ground is her first novel and was longlisted for the Desmond Eliot Prize. Her second, Redder Days, is due to be published by Doubleday in 2021.
