T Kingfisher



A pseudonym used by Ursula Vernon

T. Kingfisher is the vaguely absurd pen-name of Ursula Vernon. In another life, she writes children's books and weird comics, and has won the Hugo, Sequoyah, and Ursa Major awards, as well as a half-dozen Junior Library Guild selections.

This is the name she uses when writing things for grown-ups.

When she is not writing, she is probably out in the garden, trying to make eye contact with butterflies.
 

Genres: Fantasy, Horror, Children's Fiction

The Hollow Kind (2022)
Andy Davidson
"A deep, dark story of family secrets and inherited horrors, Andy Davidson's The Hollow Kind is as gripping and twisted as old tree roots-you can practically smell the creosote and longleaf pine. This one kept me up, turning pages long into the night."
