Eve Smith writes speculative fiction, mainly about the things that scare her. She attributes her love of all things dark and dystopian to a childhood watching Tales of the Unexpected and black-and-white Edgar Allen Poe double bills. In this world of questionable facts, stats and news, she believes storytelling is more important than ever to engage people in real life issues. Her flash fiction has been shortlisted for the Bath Flash Fiction Award and highly commended for The Brighton Prize. When she's not writing she's romping across fields after her dog, trying to organise herself and her family or off exploring somewhere new.
