Martin Millar is a Glaswegian bestselling author from London that is best known for the “Kalix MacRinnalch” series of novels. Writing as Martin Scott, he has also been very successful as the author of the “Thraxas” fantasy series of novels.

Millar penned “Milk, Sulphate, and Alby Starvation” in 1987, setting off his writing career. When the work went on to become very popular, he kicked on from there.

He now has more than a dozen works to his name including several titles under his pseudonym Martin Scott.

Writing as Martin Millar, he usually pens works that are themed on British subcultures and urban decay. He usually expounds on how these have a significant impact on his many characters both supernatural and realistic.

For the longest time, his writing has for the most part been inspired by the “Sex Pistols.” Among his other inspirations include manga, ancient history, Jane Austen, and Led Zeppelin.

For his works, Milar was the winner of the best novel at the World Fantasy Award in 2000.

Millar was born in Glasgow in Scotland, which is where he spent much of his formative years. Soon after graduating, he moved all over the UK as he crashed with friends, before moving to South London where he has now lived for years.

He initially made his home in Clapham Junction and then ended up in Brixton. He moved into the latter at a time when it was considered a place for poor people and was not the hip place it now is.

Since he was just a kid at the time, he did not have much to do. Martin Millar began writing quite early in his life as he was still in school when he completed his first manuscript.

When he was in his twenties and living with his girlfriend, he once again got the urge to write and banged out two manuscripts.

But none of his earlier attempts were any good and he stashed them away since he was in his early twenties and he thought he still had all the time in the world.
His first attempt was a science fantasy work but as he grew older, he started gravitating towards contemporary fiction.

Martin Millar penned his first work in 1987 and unlike the others, he liked it so much that he decided this was the one he would publish. Not long afterward, he found an agent, but it would take a while before a publishing house agreed to publish the work.

During this time, he was engaged in all manner of things to support himself in addition to doing casual labor and being on the dole for several years. It was not a good time, but he would soon after find a job working for GLC as a clerk.

Soon after, he moved up in the world as he worked in the Strand with King’s College, where he was hired as a library assistant. When he published his second novel in 1988, he decided to quit his daytime job and has been writing full time ever since.

While it took more than twelve years before he could support himself as an author, there is nothing he would love better than being an author.
When Millar is not writing his novels he can usually be found lounging at home on his couch and watching football.

“Lonely Werewolf Girl” by Martin Millar is a story of complex social and family conflicts.

The story is set in a world where werewolves are very real and live all over the world. Most of them are members of clans that all vow allegiance to the Scotland-based royal family of werewolves.

The royal werewolves are some of the most powerful and have the ability to transform themselves any time they feel like it.

The lead is Kalix a rebellious teenager born of the royal family that at fourteen had frequent sex with an ordinary werewolf. For her actions, she was banished, and in the resultant fight with the top dog who is her father, she ended up nearly killing him.

She had then been forced to flee before his guards could catch and punish her for her crime. Much of what follows is something of Shakespearean intrigue as the clan bickers over who should now head the royal clan.

There are many battles between the society of werewolf hunters and werewolves, in addition to magic, alienation, high fashion, anxiety, elementals from other worlds, trust issues, laudanum addiction, and suicide attempts among others.

Martin Millar’s novel “The Curse of the Wolf Girl” continues to follow the slightly anorexic, morose, unschooled, and laudanum-addicted Kalix the werewolf.
As the youngest child of the king of the MacRinnalch Clan, she is on the run after her fight with Thane her father resulted in his death.

She is also now being held responsible for the death of many other werewolves in the realm, which means that she is highly unlikely to ever return from Scotland. She has been banned from going back to Scotland to ensure peace.

But even though she has not been home for a while, there is endemic degeneracy and debauchery going on that threatens to spiral out of control.
Living in London is not that much better than living in Scotland for Kalix, as her lover is in hiding and her enemies seem to multiply by the day. She can be very dangerous when she is in a rage but in that state, she is dangerous even to herself.

Moonglow and Daniel her best friends are doing whatever they can to help her but it is not so easy.

Martin Millar’s novel “The Anxiety of Kalix the Werewolf” opens with Kalix MacRinnalch, an eighteen-year-old teenage werewolf.

She is currently living in London but has not gotten over her issues with self-abuse, depression, and anxiety.

She has been enjoying the support of her new friends and everything had been fine until members of her clan start being picked off by the Guild of Werewolf Hunters.

Most of the Werewolf clan in Scotland do not think much of Kalix and no one is sympathetic to her eating disorder, depression, tendency for violence, substance abuse, and illiteracy.

But she is living with her two best friends and is safe from her detractors in London and could not have been calmer. If only people left her alone, she believes she could be able to deal with her issues.

Unfortunately, her enemies in Scotland will not leave her alone, and neither will the werewolf hunters.
