Hi, Fran here! My fantasy novel, Updraft, debuts from Tor in 2015. In it, you’ll find towers, manmade wings, secrets, dangers, and fierce young women and men who live their lives above the clouds. I can’t wait to share it with you.
My science fiction and fantasy stories appear in Asimov’s, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Nature Magazine, Daily Science Fiction, and the Impossible Futures anthology. For fun, I interview authors about the intersection of food and fiction with a column called Cooking the Books.
In previous lives, I learned how to tie a bunch of sailing knots, set gemstones, and program digital minions. I’ve also taught writing and digital media at two colleges, a high school for the creative arts, and a long-distance program for young writers.
