Tabatha (TL) Wood is a double award-winning Deaf author and editor of weird, dark speculative fiction and quiet horror from Aotearoa, New Zealand.

A former English teacher and school library manager, their first books were nonfiction guides for professional educators.

They now tutor from home while also working as a freelance writer, editor and illustrator.

They like strong coffee, soft cats, and spending time by the sea.
