P. M. Freestone writes speculative fiction (mainly for young people), has published a handful of short stories (including work in anthologies from Penguin Books), and is now developing novel-length projects.


In 2011, she graduated from the Clarion Writers’ Workshop (University of California, San Diego), and in 2016 was awarded a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award. She is a member of Scottish PEN and the SCBWI.


A self-proclaimed nerd, since childhood she has been intrigued with all things speculative, and you'll find her writing is littered with apocalypses, alternate histories and fantastical occurrences.  She also collects university degrees. Among them, she is a qualified archaeologist and a doctor of something philosophical.


And that gleam in her eye? Wanderlust.
