Emily Tesh grew up in London and studied Classics at Trinity College, Cambridge, followed by a Master's degree in Humanities at the University of Chicago. She now lives in Hertfordshire, where she passes her time teaching Latin and Ancient Greek to schoolchildren who have done nothing to deserve it. She has a husband and a cat. Neither of them knows any Latin yet, but it is not for lack of trying.
Tesh is the author of Silver in the Wood.
Emily Tesh recommends
Lord of Secrets (2019)
(Empty Gods, book 1)
"Lord of Secrets is a fast-paced necromantic adventure. The characters are sharp, the dialogue is funny - and wow, Teintze can really write a monster! From the sadistic priest to the power-crazed wizard, from the delicate horrifying brilliance of her undead creations to the lurking, dreadful, beautiful monster at the heart of an ancient buried temple, I was alarmed and delighted at every turn."
The Unspoken Name (2020)
(Serpent Gates, book 1)
A K Larkwood
"The Unspoken Name has everything spine-tingling prose, gorgeous worldbuilding, powerful older women, found family (but it's terrible), giant snakes, ancient tombs, dead gods, and true love. It's fantastic. I read it in one sitting."
