Foz Meadows is a bipedal mammal with delusions of immortality, and the author of two YA urban fantasy novels, Solace and Grief and The Key to Starveldt. As well as keeping her own blog, Shattersnipe, she is also a contributing writer for The Huffington Post and Black Gate, and a contributing reviewer for Strange Horizons and A Dribble of Ink. Her poetry has appeared in Goblin Fruit, and her writing has been included inSpeculative Fiction 2012: The Best Online Reviews, Essays and Commentary, edited by Justin Landon and Jared Shurin. Foz likes cheese, sleep, and geekery, but not necessarily in that order. An Australian expat, she now lives in Scotland with not enough books, her very own philosopher, and a Smallrus. Surprisingly, this is a good thing.
