Sally Keeble's Biography
Sally writes about the things she’s passionate about—the triumphs and tragedies of people’s everyday lives. It’s what originally took her into journalism and then politics, and keeps her active there still.
Growing up in a diplomatic family, she spent her early years in the USA, Switzerland and Australia, returning to the UK after working as a journalist in South Africa. She went into local government during the turbulent 1980s and was one of the intake of women who swept into Parliament as MPs in 1997. She became a minister in local government and then international development.
Itchy feet don’t stand still. After losing her seat, she set up an international development agency for the Anglican Communion, and travelled widely, especially in Africa and South Asia. She’s written nonfiction previously. However, “She, You, I” is her first novel. Some of the storylines in it draw from experiences in her previous personal and professional life. Sally splits her time between Northampton and Bawdsey, a village in coastal Suffolk. She and husband Andrew have two adult children.
