Tamsin Keily

Tamsin learnt to love writing from an early age, thanks to her mum, and hasn’t stopped since. In between filling notebooks with stories, she studied Psychology at Durham University, then trained as a primary school teacher at Bath Spa University.

She now lives in leafy Berkshire with her husband and two cats. When she’s not wrangling a classroom of five year olds into knowing their phonics (otherwise known as teaching), she likes nothing more than tapping loudly on her laptop until it makes a story, while singing show tunes in the wrong key.

Daisy Cooper’s Rules for Living is Tamsin’s first novel.
