Felicia Yap is the author of the speculative literary thrillers Future Perfect and Yesterday. Future Perfect is a murder mystery set in a near-future Britain where computers can predict how we live and when we will die. Her debut, Yesterday, is about a murder that takes place in a parallel universe where people can only remember a day – or two.
Felicia grew up in Kuala Lumpur and currently resides in London. She read biochemistry at Imperial College, followed by a doctorate in history (and a half-blue in competitive ballroom dancing) at the University of Cambridge.
Felicia has written widely for publications such as The Economist and her works have been translated in multiple languages around the world. She has also worked as a cell biologist, a war historian, a university lecturer, a technology journalist, a theatre critic, a flea-market trader and a catwalk model.
