London Shah is a British-born Muslim of Pashtun ethnicity. She has lived in Britain's capital for most of her life, via England's beautiful North. On any given day she can be found daydreaming of a different past, an alternate present, or some surreal future. She enjoys drinking copious amounts of tea, eating all the sweets and cakes, strolling through Richmond Park or along the Thames, getting lost on an evening in the city's older, darker alleyways—preferably just after it's rained—listening to punk rock, and losing herself in a fab SFF book or film.

Her debut novel The Light at the Bottom of the World is out now from Little, Brown. It's the first book in the Light The Abyss sci-fi duology. You can read more about it here. The sequel Journey to the Heart of the Abyss is coming in Fall, 2021. More on that here.
