Alys West writes contemporary fantasy and steampunk. Writing steampunk was a natural development from her obsession with tea.

How could she not write in a genre where the characters shared her belief that 90% of the world’s wrongs can be solved with a nice cup of tea? The Dirigible King’s Daughter is a Steampunk romance; “If you like Gail Carriger or Georgette Heyer you’ll love this sparkling romance with a steampunk twist.”

Alys teaches creative writing for Converge, an arts education project for people with mental health issues and at the Lifelong Learning Centre at the University of York.
