About

I am an award-winning short fiction writer whose work regularly appears in major speculative fiction markets. Many of of my stories have been selected for year’s best anthologies, and have been translated internationally. I’m a regular contributor to Clarkesworld’s Another Word column. In 2018, my time travel adventure Gods, Monsters and the Lucky Peach debuted to high critical praise.

In 2018, my story “A Human Stain” won the Nebula Award for Best Novelette, and my novelette “We Who Live in the Heart” is currently a finalist for the 2018 Theodore Sturgeon Award.  In 2017, I was a finalist for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.  In 2016, my novella “Waters of Versailles” won the Prix Aurora Award and was also a finalist for the Nebula Award and World Fantasy Awards. My short story “The Three Resurrections of Jessica Churchill” was a finalist for the 2015 Theodore Sturgeon Award, and my short story “Two-Year Man” was a finalist for the 2015 Sunburst Award.

I grew up in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. When I was a teenager I competed in barrel racing and was crowned princess of the Hinton Big Horn Rodeo. From 2008 to 2012, I had the good fortune to write the wine and spirits column for Chatelaine, Canada’s largest women’s magazine. After 22 years in Vancouver, my wife (fellow SF writer A.M. Dellamonica) and I now make our home in downtown Toronto.
