After cutting their teeth on a steady diet of fanfiction in the South-West of England, Esme Symes-Smith wandered north to Wales for their degree in Literature and Creative Writing then promptly migrated to Missouri after meeting their wife on Tumblr.

Between countries, Esme dabbled in ghostwriting other people’s stories before settling down to run a small ice-cream shop and focus on their own.

When they’re not writing for their younger self, Esme deals caffeine to the desperate as a Starbucks barista, and NaNoWriMos three times a year.

They have a severe tea problem.
