About Abigail Dean In Conversation With Emma Gannon

Join us to meet debut novelist and former Waterstones bookseller Abigail Dean as she talks about her gripping thriller, Girl A, with podcaster and fellow novelist, Emma Gannon.

Following the news that their abusive mother has died in prison, Lex and her siblings must face the horrors of their past once more in this arresting debut that is both a page-turning thriller and a searing portrait of survival.

Abigail Dean was born in Manchester and grew up in the Peak District. She graduated from Cambridge with a Double First in English. Formerly a Waterstones bookseller, she spent five years as a lawyer in London, and took summer 2018 off to work on her debut novel, Girl A, ahead of her thirtieth birthday. She now works as a lawyer for Google and is currently writing her second novel.

Emma Gannon is a Sunday Times bestselling author, speaker, novelist and host of the no. 1 careers podcast in the UK, Ctrl Alt Delete. She has blogged since 2009; podcasted since 2016 and is the author of four books to date, including her debut novel, Olive, out in paperback this summer, and Sabotage: How to Silence Your Inner Critic and Get Out of Your Own Way’?
