Chloe Timms lives on the east Kent coast where she started a career in teaching. After a redundancy Chloe took the opportunity to realise her writing ambitions and completed a Masters in Creative Writing at the University of Kent. Following her degree, Chloe’s writing was a runner up in Stylist Magazine’s 2017 novel writing prize and she was also a finalist for the Penguin Random House WriteNow mentorship. Chloe went on to receive a scholarship with Faber Academy where she completed their novel writing programme and found her confidence as a writer.
Outside of writing, Chloe is passionate about disability rights. At 18 months, Chloe was diagnosed with the genetic condition Spinal Muscular Atrophy, so wheelchair accessibility has been a lifelong fight. She has taken part in charity campaigns and written pieces for The Guardian and national charity organisations and believes that writing gives her the independence and freedom to create and enjoy a world without barriers.
She is currently working on her debut novel The SeaWomen.
