Long Bio

Talulah J. Sullivan has been a pro equestrian, a dancer, an actor, an activist, and a teacher who has learned as much from her two- and four-legged students as she’s ever shared with them… yet she’s never managed to not be a storyteller. Ever.

Being a result of one of the original cross-cultural exchanges—Scots-Irish and Choctaw/Chickasaw—making a home base in dampish forest county came quite naturally. Sharing that home base with a longtime spouse, several four-legged companions, and a lifetime’s collection of books took a bit more work, of course. And, having also inherited the itch for travelling from both sides of the pond, her home has wheels for a reason.

Blood Indigo is the first (but not the last!) of her novels seeking to weave a ‘tale basket’ in the proud example of her Choctaw and Chickasaw grandmothers. She is a member of the Historical Novel Society, the Author’s Guild, & the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association. As J Tullos Hennig, she was awarded the Speculative Literature Foundation’s juried Older Writers Grant in 2018, and wrote the award-winning historical fantasy series The Books of the Wode, in which Robin Hood is reimagined as a queer, chaotic-neutral druid.

No matter the name, her works reflect literary worlds old and new, cultures both fantastic and familiar, and promise readers an immersive, subversive experience.
