About Kate Rauner

Kate Rauner, Hanover, New Mexico, USA
A science fiction writer, poet, firefighter, and engineer on the way to becoming an eccentric old woman.

I write science fiction novels and science-inspired poetry, and serve as a volunteer firefighter. I'm also a retired environmental engineer and Cold War Warrior (honestly, that's what Congress called us) because I worked in America's nuclear weapons complex. Now living on the edge of the southwest's Gila National Forest with my husband, cats, llamas, and dog, I'm well on my way to achieving my life-goal of becoming an eccentric old woman.
