Fiona Sampson is a prize-winning poet and writer. Fiona has been published in more than thirty languages and received an MBE for services to literature. A Fellow of the Royal Society for Literature, and the recipient of national and international honours for her poetry, she has also worked as an editor, translator, and university professor as well as a violinist.
The Sunday Times wrote of Fiona’s recent biography of Mary Shelley – the creator of Frankenstein: “If we get another literary biography in 2018 as astute and feelingful as this one, we shall be lucky.” The Daily Mail’s reviewer said: “Frankenstein might be thrilling, but I found this story of its creator just as much of a page turner.”
