Rory Michaelson is always doing too many things, and rarely the ones that they ought to be. They spend their time reading, watching anime, and trying to convince their fiancé to let them have a pet cat (this is forbidden due to them being too ‘cat-like’ themself, and said fiancé not wanting to be ‘outnumbered’). Rory is easily bribed with cookies, and aims to be one of the many queer authors continuing the fill the world with infinite sparkling rainbow-coloured towers of beautiful queer books.

Rory writes novels featuring LGBTQIA+ characters, and the 'Lesser Known Monsters' series is their debut; a queer dark fantasy about a found family in London finding out that all the old stories about monsters were real.
