Lorena Carrington in a photographic illustrator, artist and sometimes-writer. Her book Vasilisa the Wise and Other Tales of Brave Young Women, fairy tales retold by Kate Forsyth, is out now from Serenity Press. She is currently working on Sightings, a collection of short stories by Jennifer Lehmann, and the Old Crane Woman by Sharon Blackie. She will soon start work on Mollie Whuppie and Other Tales of Clever Young Women; a follow-up to Vasilisa the Wise with Kate Forsyth, and an as yet untitled book with Jane Talbot.

She would appreciate deliveries of tea and biscuits, and occasional reminders of the outside world.
