Jessica Moor grew up in South West London. She has a degree in English literature and creative writing and has worked in the cultural and social sectors, particularly with women who are victims of violence. This experience has fuelled her storytelling, her fierce desire to be a voice for these women. Her first novel, The Women Who Feared Men, was shortlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize and was included in The Observer-The Guardian’s prestigious list of the top ten first novels. Jessica Moor lives in London.
Autobiography for Quais du Polar
I’ve lived across Europe for the last few years, writing about feminism and the stories of women’s lives. My debut novel came out in spring 2020, just four days before the U.K. went into lockdown, so I am very much looking forward to finally meeting readers in person at Quais du Polar!
