Hello! I'm Kirsty Logan, an award-winning, widely-published writer of short fiction and journalism. My first book, The Rental Heart and Other Fairytales, is out now.

I am the literary editor of The List and I write a regular column on the X-Files for The Female Gaze.

My short fiction and poetry has been published in print and online, recorded for radio and podcasts, and exhibited in galleries.

My second book, The Gracekeepers, will be published in Spring 2015 by Harvill Secker in the UK, Hogarth in the US, and Random House in Canada.

I'm 29 and live in Glasgow, where I mostly hang out with my girlfriend Annie and our dog Rosie, read ghost stories, drink coffee, make things for my flat, listen to riot grrrl, & wish I was closer to the sea.

The Floating House

I'm so excited to have a story in the new issue of The Simple Things: a love story set between Tokyo, Finland, and the English Midlands. If you're into thrift shops, home cooking, treasure hunting, and being a curious and bookish sort, I reckon you'll like the magazine.
