As a result, Bridget grew up around Ceilidh bands and dancing. She attended Catholic schools and went on to graduate with a degree in English from Lancaster University.

She became a writer and won her first prize in 1991 for the Time Out short story category. She went on to write collections of short stories, plays for radio and theatre, and several films.
