Imogen writes sweeping, historical fiction set in the US. As a teenager she took the Greyhound bus from San Francisco to New York. Over those three days of staring out of the window at the majestic mountains and endless flat plains, stories wound themselves into her head: tales of brooding, charismatic men captivated by independent young women.
Since then, Imogen has worked in a coffee-shop in Piccadilly, a famous bookshop and a children’s home. She has run festivals and turned a derelict housing block on one of the poorest estates in the UK into an award-winning arts centre.
During 2020 Imogen was selected by Kate Nash Literary Agency as one of their BookCamp mentees, a new mentorship programme designed to accelerate the careers of promising new writers.
Married with two daughters, Imogen divides her time between Wales and Sardinia.
