Misha Herwin lives in a house with a dragon in the garden and a very demanding cat. She has a husband and grown up children and has been writing stories and plays for as long as she can remember. Her first play was staged in a theatre made from a cardboard box, but things have improved since then and she has had plays and musicals produced in schools and by theatre-in-education groups in the UK and in Jamaica.
Her Dragonfire trilogy for 8-12 year olds is out on Kindle. Her short stories for adults have appeared in The Alchemy Press Book of Ancient Wonders, The Yellow Room and Voices of Angels.
She loves fantasy and creating alternative worlds, which are closely related to the one we live in. When she’s not writing, she runs creative writing groups in schools and libraries and working with local museums on drama projects. She is also involved in setting up a fringe literary festival.
