Suzy A. Kelly’s short fiction is rooted in the dark folklore, superstitions, history, and languages of Scotland. They are working on their debut historical crime novel, Vile Deeds of the Amazing Crab Girl, which combines Scottish serial killers with Victorian stage magicians.
In 2021, they were one of ten emerging writers commissioned for the FRESH INK project organised by Nadine Aisha Jassat and the National LIbrary of Scotland. They are also prose winner of the 2017 Imprint Writing Awards and their work was selected for inclusion in A. L. Kennedy’s Short Story Masterclass in St Andrews in 2018.
After spending decades in Edinburgh and the Highlands and Islands, Suzy has returned home to Ayrshire where they live by the beach with their two cats, Fonzie and Luna.
