Georgina Kamsika was born in South Yorkshire, the youngest child to her Anglo-Indian immigrant parents. After attending a local catholic school, she escaped to university in Nottingham and began writing. Many years later, now based in Sheffield, she began taking writing seriously and has published several speculative short stories in magazines and the odd anthology. She is lucky enough to have three friends who write and they all work together regularly, sharing ideas, discussing writing techniques and motivating each other.
She reads widely, everything from E.M. Forester to Chuck Palahnuick and values her comics collection – from Sandman to Preacher. She admits to being a geek and whenever she’s not writing, she loves reading and walking her two dogs in the local woods. Her partner, Andy, is very patient and supports her at all times, even when her only response is ‘shush, go away. Writing’.
