I’m Jill Hopper, a writer and author based in London.

I was born in Essex and spent the first eighteen years of my life there before going to King’s College, Cambridge to do an English degree. I trained as a journalist and worked as a reporter on local newspapers, later becoming a magazine editor.

As a member of writers’ collective 26 Characters I have written about astrophysics for the Bloomsbury Festival, about skylarks for the Wildlife Trusts, and about two brothers killed at the Somme, for the Imperial War Museum. I’m also the founder of Imaginary Friends, an informal group for women writers.
