Leone Ross’s third novel, This One Sky Day (Faber/FSG) was published to critical acclaim in 2021. Her first novel, All the Blood Is Red, was longlisted for the Orange Prize and her second, Orange Laughter, was chosen as a BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour Watershed Fiction favourite. Her short fiction has been widely anthologised and her 2017 short story collection Come Let Us Sing Anyway was nominated for the Edge Hill Short Story Prize, the Jhalak Prize, the Saboteur Awards and the OCM BOCAS Prize. The Guardian has praised her 'searing empathy' and the Times Literary Supplement called her 'a pointilliste, a master of detail…’ Ross has taught creative writing for twenty years, at the Arvon Foundation, University College Dublin, Cardiff University and Roehampton University in London, as well as at Faber Academy. She is editor of Glimpse, the first Black British anthology of speculative fiction, due out in Autumn 2022 with Peepal Tree Press.
