Fay Keenan is a writer of contemporary women's fiction. She was runner-up in the Woman/Accent Press Unpublished Novelists' competition in 2014, and was shortlisted for Choc Lit's Search for a Star competition in 2015.
Having recently signed a 3-book deal with Aria/Head of Zeus, her debut novel, The Second Chance Tea Shop, set in the fictional Somerset village of Little Somerby, will be published in April 2017, with two more Little Somerby novels to follow.
Fay has also written articles on various media topics including The Night Manager, Red Dwarf and The Man in the High Castle for the English and Media Centre's Media Magazine, and writes a regular blog at www.faykeenan.com
Fay lives with her husband, two daughters, a cat, two chickens and a Weimaraner called Bertie in a village in Somerset, which may or may not have provided the inspiration for her series of Little Somerby novels, and when she's not writing, she teaches English at a local secondary school.
