Deborah Harvey lives and writes in Bristol. Her poems have won several prizes, including the 2010 Wells International Poetry Competition, the 2011 Dor Kemmyn Poetry Competition, the 2012 Pre-Raphaelite Society Prize and the 2013 Buzzwords Gloucestershire Prize.
Deborah’s first collection of poetry, Communion, was published by Indigo Dreams in 2011. Her novel, Dart, about life on Dartmoor during the Black Death, was published under their Tamar Books imprint in February 2013. Map-Reading for Beginners is her second poetry collection.
Deborah is a trustee of Poetry Can, the poetry development agency for the south-west of England. In her free time she indulges in extreme rambling with her border collie, Ted.
She is particularly interested in folklore and the social history of the middle ages and the early modern period. She is often to be found loitering in ancient buildings, country lanes and churchyards.
