Mercia McMahon

Biography

Mercia McMahon is a fiction and non-fiction author, as well as a poet. She was born, bred and battered in Belfast, but now lives in London, when not travelling to research a book.

Mercia's fiction work is sometimes darkly serious, sometimes quirky, sometimes serious and quirky and always deeply political. She ignores all rules especially the rule that she always ignores rules. One rule she definitely ignores is that an author should not hop from genre to genre. Her work includes both literary fiction and speculative fiction (alternative history, fantasy, and science fiction).

In her non-fiction work Mercia writes in the areas of history, philosophy, religion, gender studies, and creative writing. Again, the political angle is never far from the surface.
