T. Kingfisher



T. Kingfisher is the vaguely absurd pen-name of Ursula Vernon. In another life, she writes children's books and weird comics, and has won the Hugo, Sequoyah, and Ursa Major awards, as well as a half-dozen Junior Library Guild selections.

This is the name she uses when writing things for grown-ups.

When she is not writing, she is probably out in the garden, trying to make eye contact with butterflies.

“I’m suggesting that if you’re going to bring hell down upon someone’s head, you should dress for the occasion.”
T. Kingfisher, The Seventh Bride

“She brutalized flour and butter, she visited wartime atrocities to milk and yeast. She committed acts of crumpet.”
T. Kingfisher, Toad Words And Other Stories

“Goblin tea resembles a nice cup of Earl Grey in much the same way that a catfish resembles the common tabby. They share a name, but one is a nice thing to curl up with on a rainy afternoon, and the other is found in the muck at the bottom of polluted rivers and has bits of debris sticking to it.”
T. Kingfisher
