Sarah Perry is a bestselling English author born in Chelmsford, Essex in 1979 to a family of dedicated Christians. The author grew up with almost no access to culture, art, and writing and instead filled her time with classic novels, classical music, poetry and church related activities. Perry admits that her early involvement with the King James Bible and old literature highly influenced her writing style. She attained her Ph.D. in creative writing from Royal Holloway University. She has written some publications for the Guardian, Slightly Foxed, the Independent, and the Spectator.
