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’s first novel, Wolf Country, a work of speculative fiction exploring the idea of a consumer-driven society taken to the extreme, was published in 2019, and has been translated into four further languages. She lives with her husband in Sheffield.
