Here's what you say about us...

Born in Sheffield, Ajay Close worked as a newspaper journalist, winning several awards, before becoming a full-time author and playwright. Her first novel, Official and Doubtful, was longlisted for the Orange Prize. Her fourth, A Petrol Scented Spring, was longlisted for the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction. Her play, The Keekin Gless, was staged at Perth Theatre. The Sma Room Sance toured east Scotland and was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe.

What We Did in the Dark is beautifully written, and whilst also hard hitting and very graphic in its detail, it is a compelling read.
