Georgia-May Stone The Outside
Georgia has always been drawn to American literature, horror, and psychological thrillers since she was probably too young to be reading them. She was involved with the BFI and the Bristol Old Vic in writing and producing a short film, This Too Shall Pass, before attending Bath Spa University for her Honours Degree in Creative Writing. Georgia is currently working as a communications officer for a charity in Wiltshire, as well as writing for online publications on Medium.com. She is far too attached to the characters in her novel. She definitely believes in aliens. You can find her on Medium @G.MStone to read more of her writing. Georgia is represented by Marilia Savvides at Peter, Dunlop and Fraser.
The Outside is a story that follows Uriel and her father, who she calls Paw, in the
present as they live their lives isolated and off-grid somewhere in the Appalachian Mountain forest. Uriel has never met anyone else other than her father, until one day she finds an injured girl with a broken leg. Uriel helps the injured girl, Mallory, back to the house so that Paw can help fix her leg, but Mallory soon realises that Paw has no intentions of getting her out of the forest and to hospital. Weaved alongside Uriel’s narrative is the story of Uriel’s mother, Dixie, both as a ghost and in the moments and memories that lead up to her death.
