Author Bio

Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë were born in Yorkshire between 1816 and 1820. They wrote and shared stories from a young age, and in 1847, Charlotte’s Jane Eyre and Emily’s Wuthering Heights were both published. All three also worked as governesses and teachers, experiences that inspired Anne’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848) and Charlotte’s Villette (1853). They died in their twenties and thirties, leaving their father the only surviving family member.
 
Coralie Bickford-Smith (cover design) is an award-winning designer at Penguin Books (U.K.), where she has created several highly acclaimed series designs. She is also the author of The Fox and the Star, the 2015 Waterstones Book of the Year. She studied typography at Reading University and lives in London.
