About


Hi! My name is Beth, and I write under the name E.M. Faulds

EM Faulds Author
E.M. Faulds

I’ve been writing since I was old enough to hold a pen and make it do what I told it.

I grew up in Australia and now call Scotland my home.

I write speculative fiction in short stories and books. This includes the genres of science fiction and fantasy, among others. I grew up with SFF and longed to be able to create worlds myself.

I wrote “Ada King”, a novel about a young woman fighting a totalitarian state in a world overcome with climate change. (I wrote it in 2015, long before the current state of things. And yet somehow, it still works.) It’s also about friendship and the gift of believing in yourself.

Read more about Ada King here, or if it sounds exactly like your bag, buy it on Amazon straight away by clicking one of these links: Amazon.com | Amazon.co.uk.

I write other stuff too!

I’m a member of the Glasgow SF Writers’ Circle and have loved finding my people. They’re a lot of help and I wish I’d met them years sooner than I did. Thanks to their gentle encouragement and support, I’ve gone to conventions, met with people in the industry, and had a good old nerdy chat at the bar with many a folk.

I also host the podcast, Speculative Spaces where I talk to other SFF authors and industry professionals. Get great writing craft advice or listen to a story from your favourite speculative fiction author!

The podcast was nominated for a British Fantasy Award, which was nice.
