Tasha Sylva is an aspiring small-scale farmer, with a focus on regenerative agriculture, community and localisation. She is currently based in the southwest of England, after time in London, Scotland and southern Spain. For her, the power of story is fundamental, as is the power of language. She regularly asks: How can we foster curiosity and imagination? And, importantly, human connection – to each other, soil, plants and all threads of our environment. When not writing, she can be found swimming in the sea or watching birds. Her debut psychological thriller, The Guest Room, will be published in May 2023 by Welbeck in the UK and Holt in the US.
