We are delighted that Jemma Wayne, author of Chains of Sand, was able to share with us her favourite books from childhood.

After studying Social and Political Sciences at Cambridge University and Broadcast Journalism at the University of Westminster, Jemma Wayne began her career as a journalist at The Jewish Chronicle, and later as a columnist for The Jewish News. She is now a regularly featured blogger at The Huffington Post and continues to contribute to a variety of other publications. Her first play, Negative Space, was staged in 2009 at Hampstead’s New End Theatre, receiving critical acclaim.

Jemma’s debut novel After Before was longlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, longlisted for the Guardian Not the Booker Prize and shortlisted for the Waverton Good Read Award.

Chains of Sand by Jemma Wayne is out now in paperback. The book can be purchased in Australia here and in the UK here.
