Meet the Author

Born 17 May 1979 in Chester, Amy Elliott-Smith was brought up on the mean streets of Mid-Cheshire. In its sprawling shanty towns she began to perform stand up comedy to friends and family at an early age. Aged twenty she decided to book herself in to perform at a gong show. This went well, so Amy did more and more comedy until anxiety and depression hit her like a shovel in the face, effectively halting her career. A quivering wreck, confined to her room in fear of an irrational and sticky end, Amy began to write. This lifted the gloom a little and, slowly but surely, she become one of you 'normal' people, able to roam free in public once more. Amy holds a degree in English Literature from Liverpool University so should be treated with respect at all times. As part of her studies she lived in North Carolina for a year where she discovered the wonderful musings of David Sedaris. Randomly enough, she competed in a yacht race across the Atlantic in 2006 and came 76th (out of 250). She hated every minute of it. Amy worked at BBC Manchester hosting and writing sketches for her radio show entitled I Should CoCo. She used to model for Vidal Sassoon (oo-er), has written for her local paper (not so oo-er) and has performed stand up comedy across the UK. Her debut novel, A Guide to Becoming Distinctly Average, was published in February 2013 by Crooked Cat Publishing.
