About Audrey Taylor

Audrey Taylor lives in London and is working on a PhD in English Literature at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. She is very lucky to be able to study something she loves, fantasy literature (specifically the author Patricia McKillip), and has been reading fantasy as long as she can remember. She is just reading in a more organised way into Science Fiction now and is enjoying it immensely.
