Linda Ghio is a PhD student, freelance translator and writer, with a penchant for steampunk and classic rock.

In her early twenties, she divided her time between London and her hometown in the hills of Northern Italy. In February 2012 she graduated from the London Metropolitan University with First Class Honors in Creative Writing.

She is working on her Creative Writing PhD, focusing on merging the steampunk genre with Italian history and folklore. Since she can work online, she is taking the chance to travel and experience life in various corners of the world: after Spain, Okinawa and Kyushu, she is now in Tokyo teaching English and Italian.
