Short biography
Born with a near-pathological hatred of criticism or rejection, Imogen Howson took up fiction writing and found that this ensures she receives plenty of both.

Nevertheless, she continues to write—mostly so she can play with re-imagined fairy tales and myths. Her stories are populated by shape-shifting panthers, mutated teenagers, malevolent sentient shadows, people who can turn into lava, and heroines with beautiful names.

Imogen lives near Sherwood Forest with her partner and two daughters. Fortunately, none of them seems disposed to reject her. Training them not to criticise is taking longer, but she feels confident of eventual success.
