Anstice Brown has had her nose in a book and her head in the clouds for as long as she can remember. A geek/hippie hybrid with a love of all things retro, Anstice enjoys doodling, gaming and raving about books on her blog, Dusting the Soul. She adores speculative fiction and is currently working on a science fantasy novel.
Anstice has a BA in Literature and Philosophy and currently works as a school administrator. She lives on the East coast of England with her wonderful husband, daughter and their mischievous cat, Magical Mr. Mistoffelees.
Her short story ‘Sea of Sorrows’ appears in the YA romance anthology Masquerade: Oddly Suited. Her poetry has previously been published in Poetry Rivals’ Collection 2010: A New Dawn Breaks and Snark Magazine: Issue 1.
I live in Lincolnshire (UK), with my husband, daughter and our crazy cat. It’s a rural county characterised by beautiful sunsets and smelly cabbage fields (and I wouldn’t have it any other way).
By day I’m a data administrator and assistant exams officer, but by night, when my daughter finally goes to bed, I’m also
a crime-fighting superhero writer and blogger.
When I’m not writing or working I’m usually reading, making something or playing computer games. I blog about my hobbies over at Dusting the Soul.
I like to sing show tunes in the shower, tap dance on wooden floors and snack on pickled onions on toast. I’m also mad about Harry Potter. What, after all this time? ALWAYS.
