Anstey Harris


Virtual Conference Only

Anstey Harris lives in Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland, where she runs a writing retreat with her violin-maker husband, Colin Cross. She won the H G Wells Short Story Prize in 2015 and her debut novel, Goodbye Paris, was translated into 9 languages. She has three children, two step-children, and two grandchildren. She often writes on the subject of family and, in particular, on historical adoption – she was born in an unmarried mothers’ home in Liverpool, UK, in 1965. Anstey teaches creative writing via Zoom – moving online in 2020 has meant that her classes are now accessible across the world.
