TRICIA CRESSWELL is a retired public health doctor. She temporarily returned to work in spring 2020 in support of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and now, in 2021, is volunteering as a vaccinator. As a dedicated reader of fiction and aspiring writer, she completed the MA in Creative Writing at Newcastle in 2017. Her work reflects her concerns about social justice, women’s reproductive rights and the ethical complexities we all face. Creative response to the climate emergency has now taken priority in her writing, though, like everything, this has been disrupted by the pandemic.
Tricia was the winner of The Mslexia Novel Competition announced in 2020. Her novel is publishing in HB in Spring 2022.

‘The characters are so well portrayed, from the poorest servant to the richest titled woman. The plot twists kept me guessing throughout.’ NICOLA HOLLOWAY, BBC RADIO PRODUCER
