Vicky Zimmerman lives in London. She worked in marketing and as a food tester at a major UK supermarket before leaving to write full-time. She has written for the Guardian and the Observer as well as for women's magazines, specifically on food, body image and dating. She's a passionate foodie and, when not writing, spends her days seeking out the perfect brownie and travelling Europe and the world in search of the best and most beautiful bowl of pasta. The Woman Who Wanted More is inspired by her own grandmother's 1950s cookery manual.
