K. S. Dearsley began writing stories practically as soon as she could hold a pencil. She started with fiction and plays (often inspired by Dr. Who) and a series of secret agent 'novels' influenced by The Avengers and The Man from Uncle, and continued writing throughout a series of jobs before returning to university to get an MA in Linguistics and Literature. She finally got to be a professional writer, freelancing for newspapers, magazines and businesses.
She is now a prize-winning playwright and short story writer (The Jo Cowell Award, Dark Tales, Lymm Festival, Sussex Radio Playwriting etc.), and her work has appeared in various publications on both sides of the Atlantic, including Daily SF, Dark Horizons, QWF, Time for Bedlam and Diabolical Plots.
When she is not writing she practises Tai Chi and daydreams about living in a warm country.
