Tina Connolly is the author of the Ironskin trilogy from Tor Books, and the Seriously Wicked series, from Tor Teen. Ironskin, her first fantasy novel, was a Nebula finalist. Her stories have appeared in Lightspeed,, Strange Horizons, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and many more.

Her narrations have appeared in audiobooks and podcasts including Pod Castle, PseudoPod, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and her Parsec-winning flash fiction podcast Toasted Cake.

The librarian apologizes for that, but apologies don’t put the words in your hands.
