Polly James Book and Novel

Polly James - Author


Polly James was born in Wales, but now lives in East Anglia, which she finds unnervingly flat, and chock-full of writers.

She works as an editor, but has had a variety of different jobs, ranging from teaching dance, and designing clothes, to being an advisor for the CAB and a caseworker for two different Members of Parliament. She has found something to laugh about in all of them.

Polly is married, with two children, and a large extended family, none of whom find her half as funny as she thinks she is.
