Beneath A Thousand Skies is a blog about books, nerdery and Dungeons & Dragons.

The Blogger – aka Me

Greetings! I’m Rowena, a thirty+ (not sure when that happened) year old blogger who currently resides in East Scotland after moving up here for university and never quite leaving. I’m a geography graduate and I also have a post-grad diploma in Coastal and Maritime Societies and Cultures, and will be starting a second undergraduate degree in Archaeology in September 2023.

I also happen to be dyslexic, so if you encounter some jumbled letters, please know I do my best to proof read everything, multiple times, and often add mistakes on those later passes. I love anime, dungeons & dragons and video games, and the rest of the time I can be found curled up with the cat, dog and a good book while hiding away from the Scottish weather.

I decided that I wanted to do more with my love for books, inspired by getting more involved with bookish events in 2019 – hence this blog where I will review, ramble about and share the books I’m reading and want to read, and general nerd out about books.

My favourite book genres to read include (although I will give most genres a read):

  • Fantasy (especially Epic, Dark and Grimdark)
  • Sci-fi
  • LGBTQIA (in all genres)
  • Action/Adventure
  • Non Fiction

My favourite authors are Sarah Chorn, Luke Tarzian, Nathan Hall, Anna Stephens and Tamora Pierce. While Anne McCaffrey will aways have a special place in my heart because that was my gateway to reading SFF, and I am also an avid Clive Cussler reader!

 The Writer


The Blog

    The blog is titled Beneath a Thousand Skies in reference to the idea that ‘a reader lives a thousand lives’ (G.R.R. Martin), and the fact that I read a lot of fantasy of sci-fi which occur beneath very different skies that the usually grey Scottish sky.
