Esther Brazil was born in Concord, California, brought up in Beijing/Singapore/Sydney, educated at Oxford, and relieved of any lofty ideals she might have once had about “art” at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Nevertheless, she claims Olney, Illinois as her hometown, because it’s where she went to eighth grade. Also, she’s registered to vote there. And it has white squirrels.
She writes, and thinks in Oxford, where she lives with with B (husband) and B minor (baby). She usually works in London and abroad as a classical singer, but is on “maternity leave” at the moment, which means she drags her baby around to gigs with her. First novel in progress, mostly about witches and art museums and other fun stuff. Come say hi on Twitter.
