ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Sarah Monette and Katherine Addison are the same person.

She was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, one of the three secret cities of the Manhattan Project. She got her B.A. from Case Western Reserve University, her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Despite being summa cum laude, none of her degrees is of the slightest use to her in either her day job or her writing, which she feels is an object lesson for us all.

She has published more than fifty short stories, seven solo novels, and three collaborations with her friend Elizabeth Bear. The Goblin Emperor won the 2015 Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel and was a finalist for the Hugo, the Nebula, and the World Fantasy Award. The Angel of the Crows was nominated for the 2021 Locus Award. Her work has been translated into Russian, Japanese, Chinese, German, Hungarian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Czech.

 

She is adjunct faculty for Ashland University's low-residency MFA program.

You can find her on Patreon as pennyvixen.

She lives, with spouse, cats, and books, somewhere near Madison, Wisconsin.
