About The Author

Alice McVeigh, a London-based cellist, has had two contemporary novels published by Orion/Hachette, one dystopian thriller published by UK's Unbound (writing as Spaulding Taylor) and three Austenesque novels (Susan: A Jane Austen Prequel, Harriet: A Jane Austen Variation and the new Darcy: A Pride and Prejudice Variation) published by Warleigh House Press.


Her books have been quarterfinalists in the BookLife, regularly been Publishers Weekly Editor's Picks, won gold medals in the Pencraft, eLit, Incipere, Global and Historical Fiction Company book awards, and been finalists in Foreword Indie's "Book of the Year" and CIBA's Cygnus, Chatelaine and Goethe book awards, as well as winning IPPYs and a Kirkus star.


Born in Seoul, she spent her childhood in Asia with her career diplomat parents, but as a teenager living in the US began to play the cello. After achieving a performance degree at Jacobs School of Music in the US she came to London to study with British cello star Jacqueline du Pre - and married, and stayed. Alice has toured the world performing in orchestras including the BBC Symphony and the Royal Philharmonic, but, since Covid, is now a full-time author.
