Born in Washington, DC, Catriona Ward grew up between the United States, Kenya, Madagascar, Yemen, and Morocco, but ended up reading English at Oxford University. She then took the famed Creative Writing MA at the University of East Anglia, and now divides her time between Devon and London. Her Gothic thriller, “The Last House on Needless Street,” has received the ultimate accolade—high praise from Stephen King—as well as featuring as book of the month in both The Times and The Observer, and becoming a Times bestseller. As part of our Literally series, which sees us commission some of the best writers in the world, she wrote “Flight,” a short story about a moment of escape.
