Dr. Stephen Carver
Stephen Carver is a literary historian, freelance editor and occasional novelist. For sixteen years he taught literature and creative writing at the University of East Anglia, spending three years in Japan as an associate-professor of English at the University of Fukui. He left UEA in 2012 to become Head of Online Courses at the Unthank School of Writing, and to work with The Literary Consultancy in London. He is the biographer of the Victorian novelist W.H. Ainsworth, and his short stories have appeared in Not-Not, Cascando, Birdsuit, and Veto. His first novel, Shark Alley, was published in 2016. He has just written a history of the 19th century underworld for Pen & Sword and is working on a follow-up. Steve is married with a young son; he likes old motorcycles, wild rockabilly, and anything to do with horror.
