Author

Eleanor Shearer is a mixed-race writer living in London, where she also works at a think tank. As the granddaughter of Windrush immigrants, she has always been drawn to Caribbean history, and for her Master’s degree in Politics at the University of Oxford, she studied the legacy of slavery and the case for reparations.

Eleanor’s debut novel RIVER SING ME HOME, which tells the story of a mother’s desperate search to find her stolen children, set in the Caribbean during the aftermath of slavery, will be published by Headline Review in the UK and Berkley in the US in January 2023.
