Melinda Salisbury

Hay Festival 2017, 

This writer’s first book, The Sin-Eater’s Daughter, was the UK’s best-selling Young Adult novel in 2015 and marked the start of an electrifying fantasy trilogy which concludes this year with The Scarecrow Queen. Poison, alchemy, revenge...the end is coming. Salisbury will reveal how she created the world within the trilogy, her passion for fairytales and fantasy, and her influences, from Game of Thrones to Harry Potter. As a child Salisbury genuinely believed that Roald Dahl’s Matilda was her biography – sadly she never manifested telekinetic powers.
