Octavia Cade

Biography

My name’s Octavia Cade. I have a PhD in science communication, and I’m currently researching seagrass restoration, focusing on the New Zealand species Zostera muelleri.

I’m also a writer – you can read my stories at Strange Horizons, Cosmos, and a number of other places. I mostly write short speculative fiction.

I also do a lot of tramping, and most of the time I manage not to injure myself. My dream is to one day complete Te Araroa, a walking trail that goes the entire length of NZ. I’ve done bits and pieces of it, and it’ll probably take me another ten years, but one day – one day dammit! – I will finish the thing.
