Edward Parnell has an MA in Creative Writing from UEA. His latest book is the narrative non-fiction Ghostland (William Collins, October 2019), an elegiac meditation on the sequestered places around Britain that haunted writers and artists whose work touches upon the weird and the eerie. Ghostland is also an autobiographical exploration of grief, memory and longing – and of the redemptive power of stories and nature.
