Esra Drake grew up in Bedford, a natural daydreamer as a child, penning poetry by moonlight and escaping into her imagination. She later moved to Bodmin moor to dwell amongst the wild things, exploring different genres of writing whilst building a business teaching archery and survival skills. The darker aspects of her past have been her main motivation for creating flawed and complex characters to encapsulate the pitfalls of humanity, attempting to navigate our vulnerability with humour and compassion.
Esra is currently writing her debut SFF mystery. She is represented by Gyamfia Osei.
