Tunde Farrand's storytelling career started when, as a child, her grandfather would scare her with Gothic tales and continuing the tradition, she would terrify her friends and family with her own made-up horror stories. Originally from Hungary, she gained a BA in Polish Language and Culture at Debrecen University (Hungary). She lived, studied and worked in several countries before settling in the UK in 2005. A language specialist and modern language teacher, Tunde also studied French at the University of Sheffield, followed by an MA in Writing at Sheffield Hallam University. Tunde is currently completing her first novel, a work of speculative fiction exploring the idea of a consumer-driven society taken to the extreme. When not writing, she enjoys watching European and Japanese films, experimental cooking, yoga and boxing. She lives with her husband in Sheffield.
