Selina O’Grady has had a lifelong interest in history and religious affairs. She was a television producer for BBC1’s moral documentary series Heart of the Matter presented by Joan Bakewell, Channel 4’s live open-ended chat show After Dark and was also a producer on Radio 4’s history series Leviathan.
As a regular reviewer for the San Francisco Chronicle, Literary Review and Tablet, she specialises in works of popular history. She is the co-editor of two books: Great Spirits: The Fifty-Two Christians who Most Influenced their Millennium (ranging from Bach to Martin Luther King), published by Paulist Press in America and Continuum Books in the UK, and A Deep But Dazzling Darkness, an anthology from Anglo-Saxon to modern times of the experience of belief and disbelief, published by Darton Longman & Todd.
World rights to Selina O’Grady’s And Man Created God were sold in a two-book deal to Toby Mundy after a four publisher auction.
