R. J. Anderson

R. J. (Rebecca) Anderson isn't trying to pretend she's not female, she just thinks initials look writerly. The daughter of a Bible teacher who read Tolkien and Lewis aloud to his children, she grew up daydreaming about Narnia and Middle-Earth, watching DOCTOR WHO from behind the sofa, and hanging out in her brothers' comic book shop. Now she writes novels about knife-wielding faeries, weird science, and the numinous in the modern world.

Her debut novel KNIFE was longlisted for the Carnegie Award in 2009 and became a UK bestseller; it and its sequels REBEL and ARROW were released in US paperback and e-book by Enclave Publishing in 2014/15. Her teen thriller ULTRAVIOLET (2011) was shortlisted for the 2012 Andre Norton (Nebula) award and the Sunburst Award for Canadian SF, and was followed by a companion novel, QUICKSILVER (2013). Her latest books are a pair of magical mystery-adventures called A POCKET FULL OF MURDER (2015) and A LITTLE TASTE OF POISON (2016).
