about me

rhian bowley fantasy young adult writerWelcome to my site!

I write, read, and blog about fantasy, sci fi, & teen/young adult fiction. I live by the seaside with the softest cat in the world, and I’m addicted to Postits.

I love: magic, spaceships, supernatural weirdness, robots, falling in love with fictional characters, witches, waterfalls, all things YA, paranormal mystery, addictive storytelling, time travel, myth, and emotional endings.

I couldn’t live without my Kindle or my library, and my favourite question is “So what are you reading?”

I’ve blogged for Mslexia, and reviewed books for a few places, including the British Fantasy Society. I’m proud to be have been a juror for the British Fantasy Awards since 2013, most recently for the Best Novel prize.
