About Me


Eliza Chan writes about East Asian mythology, British folklore and madwomen in the attic, but preferably all three at once. She likes to collect folk tales and modernise them with a twist of lemon, pinch of pepper and a kilo of weird.

As a Scot, she loves a good ceilidh and has even worked in a kilt shop.  After studying English Literature and History, she moved to Japan for three years. She came back to the UK via South-East Asia, volunteering and lots of pho.

Her day job  is as a speech and language therapist in Greater Manchester, working with children with complex needs.


Eliza's short stories have been published in British Fantasy Award nominated Asian Monsters, Podcastle and Fantasy Magazine.  She narrates for the Escape Artist podcasts and is a member of Codex.  She is currently working on her first novel, a modern fantasy about seafolk refugees in a flooded world.
