Kirsty Eyre grew up idolising comedy writers like Victoria Wood and Chris Lilley. Her love for theatre led her to set up her own theatre company, Class Stage, and her plays have performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and major venues in London and Brighton. Her writing credits include sitcom web series, Tom's Music Videos of Doom, and her work has been shortlisted for BBC Sharps.
Kirsty's debut novel, Cow Girl (HarperCollins) - Bridget Jones meets Cold Comfort Farm - won the inaugural Comedy Women in Print Award, run by comedic genius Helen Lederer. Her writing influences include Maria Semple, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Caitlin Moran and Dolly Alderton.
Kirsty was raised in South Yorkshire but now lives in South East London with her partner and two children.
