Stuart Turton is the British author of The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. For whatever reason, a half death was added to the American publication of this book and it was titled The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. It must be the conversion rate on death.

In addition to being an author, Turton also works as a freelance journalist in West London. He has a degree in both English and Philosophy, but didn’t really have a plan to turn either into a career. He’s done everything from stocking bookshelves to teaching English in Shanghai. Turton has worked as a travel writer in Dubai as well as a technology magazine based out of London. Freelance journalism is his most recent career, but it appears that novel writing is his future. The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle has earned a ton of praise as it was listed by Harper’s Bazaar, Stylist Magazine and Marie Claire as a must read book of 2018.
