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.

A graduate of the Clarion Writers’ Workshop (University of California), in 2016 she was awarded a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award. She loves being a member of various writing communities, including the SCBWI and PEN International.

Unabashedly nerdy since childhood, she's intrigued with all things speculative - you'll find her writing stories of 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.
