K.L. Tremaine lives in Minneapolis with her partner and more electronics than are probably good for her. She lives within walking distance of three lakes. She is a qualified library paraprofessional and has a B.A. in Creative Writing from Augsburg College.
What are you working on next?
Right now I'm working on a novel, The Crossworlds Affair, which follows up Independent Flight, and a short story that ties the two together. I'm also working on several side projects of various length from flash fiction to novella. The one I'm the most passionate about is an urban fantasy set in Edwardian-era Minneapolis, Minnesota featuring Gratia Countryman, a real, major figure from Minneapolis' past!
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors working right now are Seanan McGuire and N.K. Jemisin. For past authors who inspire me, I look to C.L. Moore - my pen name is an homage to her and her work. Outside of science fiction and fantasy, one of the long-time influences that's stuck with me was Tim O'Brien's short story collection, The Things They Carry.
It only seems simple until your plan meets the real world.
Veronica Gray is a promising young officer of the Stellar Alliance’s Interstellar Navy. Jonah Ress is a down on his luck freighter captain trying to make good on his bad debts. Only one will leave Salmani 314.
Flying and fighting in the Interstellar Navy was the only thing Sophia Kane ever wanted to do with her career. She was a crack fighter pilot, one of the best, but her ambition wasn't very far beyond the cockpit until the Battle of Syne-Gamma.
