G.D. Penman writes about queer monsters for a living. He is the author of Call Your Steel, Apocrypha, The Witch of Empire Series and many other books. He has also ghost-written more than 50 books on a wide variety of subjects, although of course he can’t tell you what any of them are. He lives in Scotland with his partner and children, some of whom are human. In those precious few moments when he isn’t writing or parenting he enjoys watching cartoons, playing games, reading more books than should logically fit into a week and complaining about his diet.
