Ever since she can remember, Leife Shallcross has been fascinated by stories about canny fairy godmothers, heroic goose girls and handsome princes disguised as bears. The Beast’s Heart, will be her debut.
Her award-winning short fiction has been published in Aurealis, Daily Science Fiction and several anthologies. She is particularly inspired by those characters that tend to fall into the cracks of the usual tales. Leife lives in Canberra, Australia, with her family and a small, scruffy creature that snores.
