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

They 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 were mentors for Queery Fest 2022, and workshop and panel facilitators at Cymera Festival 2023.

 They are represented by John Baker at Bell Lomax Moreton.
