Early life

Flanders was born to Jewish parents in London, England. She spent her childhood in Montreal, Canada, apart from a year in Israel in 1972. She moved to Britain after university, and worked as an editor for various London publishers.

Her experiences have been satirized in a crime novel, Writers' Block (2014), retitled A Murder of Magpies (2015).


As an author, Flanders concentrates on the Victorian period. Her book, A Circle of Sisters followed the lives of four female siblings and The Invention of Murder investigated crime of the era. Recently she has served as a narrator, historian, and advisor for the Ubisoft video game Assassin's Creed Syndicate.

Flanders also writes as an arts critic, on books, dance, art, and recently video games. Her work has appeared in The Sunday Telegraph, The Guardian, The Spectator and The Times Literary Supplement.
