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 spent watching Tales of the Unexpected and Edgar Allen Poe double bills in black and white.
Set twenty years after an antibiotic crisis, her debut novel The Waiting Rooms was shortlisted for the Bridport Prize First Novel Award and she has also been shortlisted for the Bath Flash Fiction Award.
Eve’s previous job as chief operating officer of an environmental charity took her to research projects across Asia, Africa and the Americas and she has an ongoing passion for wild creatures and far-flung places. A modern languages graduate from Oxford, Eve returned to Oxfordshire fifteen years ago to set up home with her husband.
When she’s not writing she’s out walking her dog, trying to organise herself and her family or off exploring somewhere new.
