Kary English



Kary English grew up in the snowy Midwest where she avoided siblings and frostbite by reading book after book in a warm corner behind a recliner chair. She blames her one and only high school detention on Douglas Adams, whose Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy caused her to laugh out loud while reading it behind her geometry textbook.

Today, Kary still spends most of her time with her head in the clouds and her nose in a book. To the great relief of her parents, she seems to be making a living at it. Her fiction includes several short stories, and a forthcoming fantasy saga about a little girl and an orange kitten.

Kary is a Writers of the Future winner whose fiction has appeared in Grantville Gazette's Universe Annex, Galaxy's Edge, Writers of the Future, Vol. 31, Undercurrents, and Daily Science Fiction. Her stories have been nominated for the Hugo and Campbell awards, and long-listed for the Bram Stoker Award
