P.M. Freestone writes YA fiction, has published a handful of short stories (including work in anthologies from Penguin Books), and is now developing several novel-length projects. She is a member of Scottish PEN and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

A self-proclaimed nerd, since childhood she has been intrigued with all things speculative—her writing is littered with apocalypses, alternate histories and fantastical occurrences. She is also a graduate of the Clarion Writers’ Workshop (University of California, San Diego), a qualified archaeologist and a doctor of something philosophical.

Her formative years were spent in Australia, but she now lives in Edinburgh, where she has a day job at a university and crawls out of bed at an unspeakable hour of morning to write before work.
