Tessa Barrie is a writer and blogger from Jersey, Channel Islands, UK.
Her first, and only, writing accolade was a Blue Peter badge aged seven, for poetry. At twelve, her miserable pre-pubescent poetry appeared in an anthology before evolving into tormented teenage angst lyrics when she entered her songwriting phase, which she finally grew out of forty years later.
She has written on a freelance basis since leaving school and co-written two factual books.
The plan was always to make writing her full-time occupation… one day, but it did come as a bit of a shock when she was made redundant in June 2015. This unfortunate twist of fate meant that she no longer had an excuse to moan about not having enough time to write so, after a relative pain-free labour, she gave her firstborn novel on 9th May 2018.
