BIOGRAPHY

Award Winning Author

Clio Gray was born in Yorkshire, and after a childhood spent by the sea in Saltburn, and later in Devon, she studied Philosophy and History of Art before going on to qualify as a librarian, working amongst the books that she has always loved.

Moving to the Highlands of Scotland in the 1990’s, which entailed  a few years of unemployment,  inspired her to begin writing. Starting with short stories, she won a number of prestigious prizes including  The Scotsman Orange Short Story Competition.

She went on to win the Harry Bowling First Novel Award in 2004 and now has thirteen books published, and several more ready to go.

Her work is always filled with intriguing historical backgrounds, leading the reader directly into the compelling, and sometimes bizarre, inner worlds of her fascinating characters.
