Zoe McAuley grew up near Belfast, but now lives in the north of England. She spent several years studying archaeology at Durham University and is now very good at staring at old walls. These days she sells toy weapons for grown-ups and writes speculative fiction.
She amuses herself with roleplaying games (both live and tabletop), her improvised comedy troupe "Scrap The Script" and playing games old enough for her computer to run. She has discovered that she only has photographs of herself in ridiculous costumes.
