Amy Beashel, who swore she’d never have pets or live north of London, lives in Shropshire with her family and their two dogs and a cat. The Sky Is Mine, an exploration of domestic abuse and rape culture, is her first novel. When she’s not writing, she’s probably thinking (or crying) about writing. A Guinness-World-Record holder for space hopping a mile in just over 17 minutes, Amy is obsessed with books, podcasts and Nutella.

Amy will be interviewed by some members of our committee about her writing. The interview will be posted on our social media.
