Goodreads Author




Member Since
February 2011

Mazarkis Williams is a writer with roots in both the US and the UK, having worked in and been educated in both countries. Each year is divided between Boston and Bristol and a teleport booth is always top of the Christmas wish-list.

Mazarkis has degrees in history and physics, and a diverse set of interests accumulated while mispending a hectic youth. Cooking has always been a passion, and in addition to feeding six children and a sizeable herd of cats, Mazarkis regularly caters for crowds of permanently hungry friends.

The Emperor's Knife is Mazarkis' first novel.

Thank you for participating in a text-based contest. I know it's so 90s, and that it's not easy for everyone to put their writing out there. So thank you.

Everybody won, so the only reason I got the dice out was to see who got first choice on their book preferences. If I assigned you a book you simply don't want, let me know and we'll talk.

A novel like the sea surrounding the city of Osiris: full of deep mystery, ineffable beauty, and the siren call of forbidden love. Swift has gifted us with a mesmerizing debut, and I eagerly await her next work. –Mike Mullin, autho..." Read more of this review »
