About Farah

Farah Cook was born in Denmark and grew up in Copenhagen. She had a rich and highly imaginary childhood spending most of her time outdoors. At the age of twelve, she began writing several short stories to fuel her passion for storytelling. Later, Farah graduated with a BA in Social Science from Sweden, an MA in Arts from London and an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Surrey. Farah has lived in many countries, including Germany and New Zealand, but settled in London where she worked as a Marketing Manager for large financial conglomerates.


Her passion for storytelling remained, and at night she started to write all the things she’d imagine. Her YA fiction novel City of Skies is the first book in the Viking Assassin Series. Farah lives in Guildford, just outside London, with her husband Christopher, and their two sons Benjamin and Noah. She speaks six languages fluently including Danish, Swedish and German, and writes full-time.

Farah is also at the Faber Academy in London.
