Ursula Holden is novelist and short story writer. Born in Dorset, she has lived in Egypt, Dublin and London throughout her life.

Holden's dedication to writing was recognized by the Royal Society of Literature with the award of a fellowship in 2010. In her early career, Holden's writing room was a booth in the typing room of the British Library; in later years her writing space is a private room at a Nursing Home in London: 'I write to live and live to write,' she says, and keeps to her daily practice.

Heralded by the Times as “one of the most seriously radiant new English writers,” her Tin Toys trilogy was re-released in 2013 to wide critical acclaim.
