About author

Felicity Hughes is a British writer and editor based in Madrid. Her work has appeared in a variety of different publications including The Guardian and Lonely Planet.

The Making of Madrid began life as a passion project. The idea was to get to know her adoptive city better and share her passion for its history with other inquisitive individuals. With a wealth of knowledge at her fingertips, she now runs unique walking tours exploring another side of Spain’s capital.

Her book about the history of Spain’s literary quarter, commissioned by The Secret Kingdoms bookshop, is due out next spring. Her novel The Insect Room is out now.
