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.

Well, it has a happy ending, but the path to it is, for me, rather less predictable. And it's got the telepathic xeno-therapists this time, giving a richer sense of people and not just the setting.
It's the price of a (cheap!) hot chocolate, and is tasty, tasty cookies for the mind. Give yourself a present...
