SK Farrell is a Scottish writer of speculative fiction, who lives near Edinburgh and works in the Borders.
She gained her BA in English from the University of Liverpool, then went on to join their interdisciplinary Medieval Studies MA course, with the support of an award from the AHRC. Her principal area of research was medieval folk poetry of the fourteenth century.
Having meandered out of academia, Farrell took up teaching. She thoroughly enjoys steering children towards HG Wells and Margaret Atwood via the gateway drugs of Philip Pullman and Alan Garner.
When neither writing nor teaching, SK Farrell is interested in live music and travelling, once taking two months to make her way from Edinburgh to Istanbul alone by train.
She is currently working on her first novel, ‘Daughter of Wax’, and various pieces of short fiction.
