The short version

P. M. Freestone is a Scottish-based writer of YA fantasy and speculative fiction. 


The longer version

P. M. Freestone spent her formative years in Australia and has since worked or studied on every continent except Antarctica (there’s still time). Along the way, she collected a motley crew of university degrees, qualifying as an archaeologist and a doctor of something philosophical in the mix.


Unabashedly nerdy since childhood, she's intrigued with all things speculative. After graduating from the Clarion Writers’ Workshop, her short stories appeared in various print and online venues, and some of them have been included on school readings lists. In 2016, she was awarded a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award, and in 2018 she was named one of the SCBWI’s UK and Europe Undiscovered Voices. 


She resides in Edinburgh, Scotland, with her Irish partner, an adopted Romanian street dog, and a menagerie of NASA-approved houseplants. When she's not writing, you'll find her reading, gaming, foraging, cooking up a storm, planning her next travel adventure, or scouring boutique perfumeries for a new favourite scent.
