Haddayr Copley–Woods has published dark fantasy and personal essays in places like Strange Horizons, Minnesota Public Radio, Ideomancer, and Year’s Best American Erotica. She’s a freelance writer who lives with her sprawling and strange family in Minneapolis, MN. This is her first science fiction sale and she is ridiculously overjoyed about it. You can find her work at haddayr.com.
In infancy she hated first diapers, then dolls. Later she hated the school bus, her eagerly smiling teachers, insipid songs about scissor safety, and standing in line for soggy meat and cheese sandwiches she didn’t even want to eat.
