Yvvette Edwards was born in Barnet, North London. She has worked in the social sector for most of her career. Her first novel, A Cupboard Full of Coats, was, to the surprise of many, long-listed for the 2011 Man Booker Prize, despite, allegedly, only having had one review (in a local paper) prior to its listing.
