Georgina Kamsika was born in South Yorkshire, the youngest child to her Anglo-Indian immigrant parents. After attending a local catholic school, she escaped to university in Nottingham and began writing. Many years later, now based in Sheffield, she began taking writing seriously and has published several speculative short stories in magazines and the odd anthology.

Leela Dutt Hi Georgina, Have you any advice to offer me on how to advertise my latest novel "Only a Signal Shown" on either Facebook or Goodreads? Is this something you have done? How much does it cost?
Hope all is well with you; was your course in the USA an amazing experience?
Leela
