Leone Ross is a novelist, short story writer, editor and educator. Her third novel, This One Sky Day (Faber) was nominated for the Women’s Prize, the Goldsmiths Prize, and the Ondaatje Prize, among others — and named a New York Times Editor’s Choice. Her short fiction has been widely anthologised and her first short-story collection, Come Let Us Sing Anyway, prompted the Times Literary Supplement to call her ‘a pointilliste, a master of detail…’.

In 2021, she won the Manchester Prize for Fiction for a single short story. Ross has taught creative writing for 25 years, and worked as a journalist throughout the 90s. She is the editor of Glimpse: A Black British Anthology of Speculative Fiction, published in 2022 (Peepal Tree).
