Steph Bennion

Biography

Steph Bennion is a writer, Westminster civil servant and occasional musician, born and bred in the Black Country but now living in South London, England. Her science-fiction stories are written as a reaction to the dearth of alternative heroes amidst bookshelves swamped by tales of the supernatural. For every aspiring vampire or wizard, the world needs an astrophysicist, an engineer, or at the very least someone who can make the trains run on time. PAW-PRINTS OF THE GODS, the follow-up to her debut novel HOLLOW MOON, was published in 2013.
