Taria Karillion grew up in a tiny cottage in the grounds of a castle and is supposedly descended from an infamous pirate (much to the amusement of her fencing coach). But despite her historical background, after an accident with a staircase, a copy of The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and a nasty attack of gravity, she soon became an incurable fan of writing science-fiction, though she has been known to wander off into the back gardens of other genres without warning. 

Her stories appear in a Hagrid-sized handful of anthologies and have earned enough Awards to half fill his other hand. Despite this, she has no need as yet for larger millinery. Her forthcoming plans include a solo collection of short stories, world peace and the discovering the recipe for calorie-free chocolate. Not a lot to ask, really…
