S. M. Mitchell is a swashbuckling night-owl pagan, whose love of pirates, the gothic and all things historical led to her starting her career as a dark fantasy author back in 2015. She has a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing and lives on the stunning Jurassic Coast in England with her crazy family and myriad of animals. When she’s not writing she can be found baking, gardening or bingeing Netflix.

S. M. Mitchell fell in love with reading as a young teenager and knew from then on that she wanted to be an author. During her English degree, she was published in two anthologies with short stories and poetry.

S. M. Mitchell’s debut novel The Bloody Maiden is a story about a woman who will do anything to escape her miserable life. She is then thrust into a world of pirates, flesh eating sirens, bloodthirsty soldiers & much more. This novel is the first in a series that explores the murky themes of morals, loss & the justification of murder. Mitchell is currently writing the rest of the trilogy as well as expanding the world with other novels, short stories & anthologies. She also works as a social media manager and coach through her business Little Crow Marketing.
