Annabel Abbs, winner of the Impress Prize for New Writers, will show you how to write a successful novel in ten simple steps.

Annabel Abbs grew up in Bristol, Wales and Sussex, before studying English Literature at the University of East Anglia.

In her debut novel The Joyce Girl, she explores the little-known life of Lucia Joyce, daughter of James Joyce and lover of Samuel Beckett. Inspired by a true story, this is a compelling and moving account of thwarted ambition and the destructive love of a father. The Joyce Girl won the 2015 Impress Prize and was longlisted for the 2015 Bath Novel Award and the 2015 Caledonia Novel Award. Her short stories have been long and short­listed for various awards.

She is now completing her second novel, based on the life of Frieda von Richthofen, wife and muse to D H Lawrence.
