about me

Hi, I’m Rhian. I live by the seaside and Write Stuff Down – fiction, book reviews, blogs, and tweets. I scribble on Post-it notes and the back of my hand, too.

I blog about books, TV, music, and anything else that makes me happy. See the ‘I write stories about‘ tab for more about my fiction.

I’ve blogged for Mslexia, and reviewed books for the British Fantasy Society and Slacker Heroes pop culture blog (RIP). I’m proud to be have been a juror for the British Fantasy Awards since 2013, most recently for the Best Novel prize.
