Emily Bullock graduated from Kings College, London with an English degree and 19th Century Literature MA. She followed this love of plot to work in film before pursuing writing full-time. She attained a distinction from UEA Creative Writing MA, and she is currently tutoring for the Open University, and studying for a Creative Writing PhD. Her short story 'My Girl' won first place in the Bristol Short Story Prize 2011, and was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2013.
Her debut novel The Longest Fight is a powerful work of fiction: played out in the post-war austerity of 1953’s London, and set against the violent world of boxing, the novel explores the role of family, ambition, and obsession in the personal struggle to overcome the mistakes and tragedies of the past. It will be published in 2015 by Myriad Editions.
