Natasha Pulley

Natasha Pulley studied English Literature at Oxford University. After stints working at Waterstones as a bookseller, then at Cambridge University Press as a publishing assistant in the astronomy and maths departments, she did the creative writing master's at the University of East Anglia. She later studied in Tokyo, where she lived on a scholarship from the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation. She was chosen to be a Writer in Residence at Gladstone's Library and is now associate lecturer at Bath Spa University and panel tutor at the Cambridge University Institute of Continuing Education. She currently lives in Bath, England.

Pulley's highly-acclaimed debut novel, "The Watchmaker of Filigree Street," was an international best-seller, won a Betty Trask Award and was shortlisted for the Authors' Club Best First Novel Award. It is a historical fantasy thriller set in atmospheric, smoggy Victorian London and Japan, which features a mysterious Japanese watchmaker who can "remember the future," a feisty young female physicist and a clockwork octopus called Katsu. Her second novel, "The Bedlam Stacks" is set mainly in Peru. Pulley's latest, "The Lost Future of Pepperharrow," is a sequel that sweeps readers off to Japan in the 1880s, where nationalism is on the rise and ghosts roam the streets.
