About M. C. Harlow


Hi there! I’m Harlow (she/her), a fantasy writer with a soft spot for urban and high fantasy. I constantly have multiple novel-length projects on the go — you can click here to learn more about those. In my limited free time, I also love giving out unsollicited book opinions on my TikTok.

I started writing my own stories when I was about ten years old, beginning with tales about what my golden Labrador would do if he suddenly acquired magical athletic powers. I wrote these in marker on paper taken from the family printer downstairs, which I then did my best to staple together and make look like a real book (quickly discovering that my craft was in storytelling, not cover design).

My first completed story was a 40k-word blatant Percy Jackson rip-off with a magic system unapologetically stolen straight from Avatar: The Last Airbender. I still have that story somewhere.

I haven’t really stopped writing since, and here we are.

If you want to get in touch with me about writing or anything else, I’m best reached at my Twitter or the aforementioned TikTok page. Cheers and thanks for visiting!


Here are a few of my favourite things, because I think it’s a good way to get to know me.
