HG Parry is the author of The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep (2019), A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians (2020), and the forthcoming A Radical Act of Free Magic (2021), all published by Orbit/Hachette Books. She has also written a number of short stories with similarly long and unwieldy titles.
She gained her PhD in English Literature at Victoria University, writing about children’s fantasy and the epic tradition, and went on to tutor English, Film, and Media Studies there and at Massey University before becoming a full-time writer. She currently lives in a book-infested flat on the Kāpiti Coast with her sister and a growing menagerie of small animals.
Some things she likes include books, trees, windy days, travelling, drawing, BBC costume dramas, potatoes, rabbits, mice, tea, more books, and history.
