Alice McVeigh, a London-based ghostwriter, has had two contemporary novels published by Orion/Hachette, an award-winning dystopian thriller published by UK's Unbound (writing as Spaulding Taylor), and two Amazon category bestsellers with Warleigh House Press.
Her first novel was optioned for filming by UK's Channel 4; her Kirkus-starred thriller was last week's runner-up in the Independent Press Awards; and Susan: A Jane Austen Prequel (winner of the Pencraft and Global Book awards in the historical category) was a quarterfinalist in Publishers Weekly’s illustrious BookLife Prize.
Born in Seoul, Alice spent her childhood in Asia with her American diplomat parents. After a cello degree at Jacobs School of Music, she came to London to study with British cello star Jacqueline du Pre - got married, and stayed.
Alice has toured the world with the BBC Symphony and the Royal Philharmonic, but, since Covid, has become a full-time author. She has one daughter and addiction to tennis.
