Carol Lee is the author of nine books,
including the bestselling To Die For.
Her work has been praised for its compassion, insight and originality - and for its scope, taking in subjects like sex education, (The Ostrich Position), post-apartheid South Africa, (A Child Called Freedom), the struggle for masculine identity (Talking Tough) and the relationship between mind and body (Crooked Angels), which was short-listed for a national prize.
Born in Wales, Carol spent much of her childhood in East Africa before returning to the UK to begin a career in journalism.
Working in National newspapers, radio and television, she has been a reporter for the BBC, and a contributor to the Observer, the Guardian, the Independent, the Times and Sunday Times, the Evening Standard and the Daily Mail.
Her short stories have appeared in London Magazine and New Welsh Review and a play, Feet First, was performed at the King's Head Theatre, Islington, not far from her home in London.
