Vikki Reilly lives in Edinburgh. She has worked in bookselling and publishing for twenty years. She was struck down by Beatlemania, thanks to her best friend's big brother's record collection and a C-90 cassette, when she was thirteen years old and hasn't been the same since. As a student, she got a job in Virgin Megastore by discussing Ringo Starr's backward fills, and – later in life – only managed the last fifteen miles of the West Highland Way by singing the Beatles back catalogue in chronological order. This is her first book.
