About

I feel like I should apologise for the picture, but I do always look like that. Hi, I’m Iona. I’m a British-Indian writer of literary speculative fiction. My pronouns are they/them. I write short stories, novellas and the occasional piece of non-fiction, and I’m currently working on my first novel. It’s about espionage, magic, and history, and also a couple of very large explosions. I’m represented by Kurestin Armada of Root Literary.

Otherwise: I live in London, I’m a lawyer and linguaphile, I’m a Gaelic learner, I know more about the history of the Underground than any reasonable person ought. If you would like to contact me please feel free. I’d be delighted to hear from you.
