about me

rhian bowley fantasy young adult writerHello!

I’m a Welsh speculative fiction writer, living by the sea with the softest cat in the world. I have very curly hair and am 90% dark chocolate.

I write about magic, spaceships, tarot, friendships, robots, witches, waterfalls, time travel, fairy tales, and that feeling in your belly when you see how big the sky is.

I read slush for Apex magazine, and review theatre and comedy for Broadway Baby. 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 several times, including for the Best Novel category.

I’m addicted to my Kindle and my favourite question is “what are you reading?”
