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, music, spaceships, tarot, friendships, robots, witches, chimera, fairy tales, and that feeling in your belly when you see how big the sky is.

I’m a slush reader for Apex magazine. I also 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 and Best Newcomer categories.

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