Frances' debut novel, Fly By Night, was published in
2005 to global critical acclaim. It won the Branford Boase Award in 2006
and was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Award. The sequel, Twilight
Robbery, was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Award in 2012.
Frances' standalone novels, Verdigris Deep, Gullstruck Island and A Face Like Glass (shortlisted for the Kitchies in 2013) have all garnered stellar reviews. Her extraordinary gift as a writer is probably best summed up by The Guardian; “Hardinge is a hugely talented writer of tireless invention and vivid prose.”
Frances is seldom seen without her hat and is addicted to volcanoes. She lives and works in Oxford and London.
