Emma Darwin was born in London, and grew up partly in Manhattan and then Brussels. After studying Drama at university she had various jobs, including driving a sandwich van and selling musical instruments, before her first novel The Mathematics of Love (Headline Review/William Morrow) was published. It is possibly the only novel ever shortlisted for both the Commonwealth Writers Best First Book and the RNA Novel of the Year, and it was followed by her Sunday Times bestselling second novel, A Secret Alchemy. Her long-established blog This Itch of Writing gave rise to the commission for Get Started in Writing Historical Fiction (John Murray Learning); she also teaches writing, and mentors writers of both fiction and non-fiction. Emma lives in London.
