BioLyssa Chiavari can trace her love of science fiction to her childhood obsession with A Wrinkle In Time and Bruce Coville’s My Teacher Is An Alien series; her love of YA, meanwhile, can be blamed entirely on Meg Cabot and, specifically, Jesse de Silva from The Mediator. After working as an after-school science teacher for several years, Lyssa now spends her days plotting her imminent move to the Martian colony—and writing about it while she waits for technology to catch up to her brain. Her short fiction has appeared in Ama-Gi magazine, Wings of Renewal, Clarion Call, and Perchance to Dream, a young adult collection of Shakespeare retellings which she also edited. Lyssa lives with her family and way too many animals in the woods of Northwest Oregon.
