Official website of the notoriously wicked author:
Larger than life writer, Eleanor Agnes Berry, specialises in black humour. She has authored over 25 published books, predominantly macabre, black humoured in tone. Her latest is My Face Shall Appear on the Banknotes.
Born and bred in London, Eleanor has led a colourful life. Berry enjoyed a privileged upbringing as the daughter of press baron, Lord Hartwell, and grand-daughter of F.E. Smith. She was also a close friend and confident of the newspaper tycoon, Robert Maxwell.
She holds a degree in English and also studied philosophy, Russian language and literature, and compiled an unpublished contextual thesis on the Marquis de Sade.
The works of Gorki, Dostoevsky, Gogol, Edgar Allan Poe and James Hadley Chase have strongly influenced her writings. Two of her novels are available in Russian and a third, which she refrains from naming, could be made into a film.
