Kary English is a Hugo and John W. Campbell nominee whose fiction has appeared in Galaxy's Edge, Daily Science Fiction, the Grantville Gazette and Writers of the Future, Vol. 31 .

Kary 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 made her 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, a planetary fantasy series available in 2015, and a fantasy saga about a little girl and an orange kitten. A student of New York Times bestsellers David Farland and Tracy Hickman, Kary aspires to make her own work detention-worthy.

Regrettably, my schedule does not allow me to take read requests. If you're looking for critiques to improve your writing, I recommend Critters, an online critique circle: http://www.critters.org/c/join.ht
