Laurel Amberdine was raised by cats in the suburbs of Chicago. She’s good at naps, begging for food, and turning ordinary objects into toys. She read a novel a day for over a decade, until she married someone who occasionally wanted to talk to her, putting an end to that streak.
She currently lives in San Francisco where she works as Assistant Editor at both Locus Magazine and Lightspeed Magazine. She is willing to entertain offers from other magazines that start with “L.”
She has published poetry and short fiction, but loves novels best of all. Her YA fantasy novel Luminator is forthcoming from Reuts Publishing.
