Short biography
Fay Weldon's body of work includes more than 20 novels, five collections of short stories, several children's books, non-fiction books, magazine articles and a number of plays written for television, radio and the stage (including the pilot episode of the hit TV series Upstairs Downstairs). Her fiction, much of which is satiric in tone, often focuses on women and gives voice to their inner thoughts and feelings. She married Roy Weldon in 1962 (they later divorced) and the couple had three sons in addition to Fay's older child. After a successful career in advertising, she began writing fiction and published her first novel in 1967.
