Tala Shannak writes dark, atmospheric stories about sleepy cities and things curled up in their shadows. She was a 2018 PitchWars mentee.

When she is not writing, Tala is building rockets, consuming far too much coffee than physically possible, and, as always, is dreaming up eerie settings and scribbles of mayhem for the next story.

Tala Shannak is represented by Megan Manzano at D4EO Literary Agency.
