L.R. Lennox had a colourful childhood. She grew up in a semaphore tower, with her parents, two sisters and no less than 15 animals. She gained an MA in the History of Art at Edinburgh University, where she dabbled in modelling and pursued painting and creative writing. After university, she worked for Condé Nast Publications, Vogue House. In 2011, she took a creative writing course at Central Saint Martins, gaining the confidence to tackle a novel. She exchanged Vogue House for Vancouver where she wrote Love Friday. She is a writer, an artist and a mum to her daughters, Freya and Suki; and her dog, Juno.
