Amy McCulloch's picture

Amy McCulloch


aka Amy Alward

Amy McCulloch is a Canadian living in London, who fits writing around work as a Commissioning Editor at one of the UK's leading fantasy imprints.

She was bitten by the travel bug at an early age while accompanying her parents on buying trips around the world for their oriental carpet business. It was this love of travel that inspired her to set a novel in a hot, desert location (moving to freezing Ottawa, Canada, where her first winter hit -40°C, might have had something to do with that too). She studied Medieval and Old English literature at the University of Toronto.
