I write because I love stories. It's as simple as that.

I want to walk in other worlds and meet new people, whether that takes me to a besieged 17th century castle or off on a roadtrip with a grandparent (deceased). Wherever it leads, I hope you'll join me.

If you want to contact me, I hang out on Twitter @AphraPell, or you can email me here.

Alternatively, to join my mailing list and receive occasional newsletters about my writing, new stories, and other interesting oddments, just fill in the form at the bottom of the page.

Latest news

I've updated the website to include the full text of Hate Compounded and Ashes to Ashes, (very) short stories that were previously published on the now closed Needle in the Hay website.
