Alex Hourston

Agent: Antony Topping

IN MY HOUSE is Alex Hourston’s first novel, and was published by Faber in May 2015. It was also shortlisted for the Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize 2013 (under a different title).

After fifteen years writing strategy for advertising agencies, Alex took a break to go back to university and her first love, books. She completed a Masters in English and started a PhD, but put it aside when the idea for this novel surfaced.

Alex lives outside Brighton with her family.

She is working on her second novel, an exploration of infidelity and emotional inheritance.
