About M.C.A. Hogarth

Daughter of two Cuban political exiles, M.C.A. Hogarth was born a foreigner in the American melting pot and has had a fascination for the gaps in cultures and the bridges that span them ever since. She has been many things—-web database architect, product manager, technical writer and massage therapist—-but is currently a full-time parent, artist, writer and anthropologist to aliens, both human and otherwise.

Her fiction has variously been recommended for a Nebula, a finalist for the Spectrum, placed on the secondary Tiptree reading list and chosen for two best-of anthologies; her art has appeared in RPGs, magazines and on book covers.

Review by: THG StarDragon Publishing on Jan. 24, 2013 :
I loved this piece, it had me crying as I've made some hard decisions of my own in life. Distant Song suits her name, or the name suits her. I especially enjoyed the description of how a storm can be undone.

Review by: Eric Hinkle on Feb. 16, 2011 :
This story is somewhat rare for Micah's work; it is a tragedy. Short and well told, it is the story of what price Distant Song is willing to pay to defend the mortals under her care and their mayfly lives. It seems almost too short to be as good as it is, or to show us as much as it does of Le'enle culture and psychology, but then again, this is M.C.A. Hogarth, and she is one of the better F&SF writers you will find.

I wholeheartedly recommend this work.
