Charlotte Amelia Poe

Charlotte Amelia Poe (they/them) is a thirty-three-year-old British author and artist. After winning the Spectrum Art Award in 2018, they published their memoir, How To Be Autistic, in 2019. That book won the East Anglian Book Award for Biography and Memoir and was runner up for the ALCS Educational Award. How To Be Autistic has since been optioned as a television series and translated into Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. The Language of Dead Flowers is Poe’s first novel and explores the three genders - man, woman, and necromancer (this is a little gender joke for the nonbinaries out there). Poe is a bisexual, asexual, autistic, nonbinary disaster and enjoys browsing tumblr, reading fanfiction, and going to comic cons. They live in a tiny village with their family and two dogs. They are a little bit obsessed with Taylor Swift and eagerly await the Reputation re-record. In the meantime, they can be found writing and complaining about writing (perhaps one more than the other).
