Born in St David’s, Pembrokeshire, and raised in Carmarthenshire, Siân has lived much of her life outside Wales. An Edinburgh University graduate, she has taught Anglo Saxon and Medieval Literature to university students in South Africa, worked as an assistant editor on the medical journal The Lancet, and ran English and Drama departments in several well-known London secondary schools. In 2007 she returned to Wales to teach and write in the Tywi valley. Her first novel Unleaving, set in Carmarthenshire and South Africa in the 1920s, was published in November 2019. Her latest book, Tiding, set in in west Wales in the winter of 1963, explores how the inhabitants of a rural township come to terms with the brutal murder of one of their own. It is a novel about memory and the dark power of the imagination. Tiding will be published by Honno in January 2023.
