I’m Gwendolyn Clare, and I write fantasy and science fiction. My My short fiction has appeared in Clarkesworld, Asimov’s, Analog, Fantasy & Science Fiction, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and my poetry has been nominated for the Rhysling Award. I’m represented by Jennifer Azantian of Azantian Literary Agency.
I’m a New Englander transplanted to central Pennsylvania, with long stops in Chicago and North Carolina along the way. I have a BA in Ecology, a BS in Geophysics, and a PhD in Mycology, which completes my acronym collection (for now, at least). I love the fieldwork aspect of being a scientist, and I’ve been lucky enough to work in awesome places like Italy, Australia, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Guyana.
I enjoy practicing martial arts, adopting feral cats, and overstaying my welcome in local coffee shops while writing. I’m still in the market for a cybernetic left arm, though my rotator cuff seems to have forgiven me for past transgressions and started functioning properly again.
