Gayle O’Brien’s debut novel

'Underground' is the first novel by UEA alumna Gayle O’Brien and has just been published by Hookline Books, having been selected as the winner of the Hookline Novel Competition last year. Gayle grew up in rural New England and moved to the UK in 1999 after gaining a BA in Literature from Sarah Lawrence College in New York. She graduated from UEA’s Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) MA in 2005 and now lives in Kent with her husband and two children. The Hookline competition is open only to students and graduates of MA writing courses in the UK and is judged by reading groups around the country. Another UEA alumna, Tamara Britten (2006), was shortlisted for the award. Gayle's website can be found at www.gayleobrien.com
