About the Author

P.A. Cornell was born in Chile and raised in Canada, and consequently learned to read in both English and Spanish. As a result, she fell in love with stories at an early age and knew from the start what she wanted to do with her life.
Through the years, many of her day jobs were writing-related. She has published non-fiction articles and book reviews, read slush and proofread for Toronto-based publisher Key Porter Books, copy edited and written for Canadian House & Home magazine for several years and has worked in both libraries and book stores.
While she still does some freelance editing, these days she can finally call speculative fiction writing her full-time job. She works from her home in Ontario, Canada, which she shares with her husband, children, and a cat with anger issues.
Her short fiction has appeared in several anthologies, most-recently the forthcoming A Punk Rock Future. She also has stories forthcoming in Galaxy's Edge and Frozen Wavelets.
She is a graduate of the Odyssey Writing Workshop, and member of the Canadian Science Fiction Fantasy Association and Codex online writing group.
