Hazel Paine grew up on the South coast, studied in London and is now loving life in the North of England. She initially qualified in medicine, but her love of science fiction spurred her to begin writing. Soulvision and its prequel Soulsight explore the obsession with appearance and tensions between ‘body image’ and ‘soul image’. Hazel shares her home with a tortoise called Toby, a gastroenterologist husband and five free-range children.
Her novel Soulsight was short-listed for the Woman Alive magazine Readers’ Choice Award 2017.
