About the Author

Pip was born in London, grew up in Sydney and now calls the Adelaide Hills home. She is co-author of the book Time Bomb: Work Rest and Play in Australia Today (New South Press, 2012) and in 2017 she wrote One Italian Summer, a memoir of her family’s travels in search of the good life, which was published with Affirm Press to wide acclaim. Pip has also published travel articles, book reviews, flash fiction and poetry. In The Dictionary of Lost Words she combines her talent for historical research with beautiful storytelling. She has delved into the archives of the Oxford English Dictionary and found a tale of missing words and the lives of women lived between the lines.

Imogen graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (London). She performed in several theatre productions in London including Rebecca; Measure for Measure; The School for Scheming and Three Sisters. She made her MTC debut in Hay Fever playing Sorel Bliss. Imogen's screen credits include The Man Who Knew Infinity and Doctors, as well as the short film, The Understudy, which she also wrote. It had a successful run on the international festival circuit.
