Alex Mullarky is a writer and veterinary nurse who loves creating stories about nature and magic. Raised in Cumbria, she studied English Literature at the University of St Andrews, Scotland and Screenwriting at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia. Alex now lives on the edge of Edinburgh with four Australians (two cats, one dog, one human) and can be found walking with their dog, swimming (sometimes with seals) and playing roller derby. The Sky Beneath the Stone is her debut novel.

They are represented by Zoë Plant of the Bent Agency.

Alex’s pronouns are she/they. (That means you can just mix it up.)
