Ever Dundas's headshot

I'm a queer disabled writer living in Edinburgh. I write literary fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and horror. I gained a Creative Writing Masters with Distinction from Edinburgh Napier University in 2011, and I have a First Class Degree in Psychology and Sociology from Queen Margaret University.

Queer Theory (interrogating taken for granted norms) and defamiliarisation (making the everyday new and strange) inform my work. I'm interested in disability and discrimination, the relationship between humans and animals, and gender norms and subversions. My first novel Goblin spans decades as eighty-one-year-old Goblin writes about her childhood in WWII London where she witnessed the pet massacre, an event that changed her life and haunts her.

I have M.E. and fibromyalgia (chronic pain and exhaustion); disability features in my work and is a major theme in my second novel HellSans, a sci-fi thriller for which I gained an Open Funding Award from Creative Scotland.
