Georgina Kamsika is a speculative fiction writer born in Yorkshire, England, to Anglo-Indian immigrant parents and has spent most of her life explaining her English first name, Polish surname and Asian features.  She reads widely, everything from E.M. Forester to Donna Tartt and values her vast comics collection. 

She remembers being very proud when her story was chosen to be displayed on the wall (this was at infant school).  Many years later, she began taking her writing seriously and has had numerous short stories published in magazines and the odd anthology. In 2012 she attended Clarion West, with a number of teachers as diverse and talented as George R.R. Martin and Chuck Palahniuk.

Her debut novel ‘The Sulphur Diaries’ (Legend Press) was released in November of 2011. Georgina can be found lurking on Twitter as @thessilian.
