Storm Constantine

UK flag (b.1956)

Storm Constantine has been writing since childhood. In 1985 she began work on the first of her Wraeththu trilogy, The Enchantments of Flesh and Spirit, which was quickly accepted and published in 1987 by Macdonald Futura in the UK, and by TOR in the US. Since then she has published 14 more novels, and one short story collection from Stark House Press called The Oracle Lips. Her most recent work includes the Grigori trilogy, a series of novels about fallen angels, published in the US by Meisha Merlin, and the Magravandias Chronicles, an epic fantasy in Gothic style, the third volume of which, Way of Light, will be published in January 2002 by TOR. She is currently working on a new Wraeththu trilogy, to be published by TOR.

Storm Constantine lives with her husband, Jim Hibbert, and nine cats in an historic part of the English Midlands, close to ancient hunting grounds and far from the industrial dark of the black country.
