Kelly McCullough writes fantasy, science fiction, and books for younger readers. He has more than a dozen novels in print or forthcoming. He has also been published in poetry, short fiction, nonfiction, and as part of educational projects for the National Science Foundation and for NASA and the Hubble Space Telescope. He lives in Menomonie, Wisconsin, with his physics professor wife and a small herd of cats. He has been engaged in activism and politics in one form another since he volunteered on the Anderson campaign for president in 1980. These days he regrets that he didn’t support Carter, but figures that being 13 at the time provides for a bit of latitude on the subject. He is currently serving his fourth term as an elected county supervisor.
