MK Hardy is the pen name for two geeky women living and writing together in Scotland.

They have published a novel and novella with NineStar Press, and were mentees in the Pitch Wars 2020-21 programme with their sapphic space opera The Stars Our Home.

Their latest novel, The Needfire, is a literary/upmarket speculative gothic fiction combining the historical flavour and sapphic yearning of Sarah Waters with the creeping dread of MEXICAN GOTHIC.

They are mentors for Queery Fest 2022, and are facilitating a spring workshop for Cymera Festival 2023.
