I grew up in Africa, India...and Kansas. Then I married a mad scientist and moved to Minneapolis, where I fold time and space to be a full-time fiction writer, part-time freelance photographer, part-time work-from-home employee, and full-time mother to my infant son. I blog intermittently at http://cloudscudding.livejournal.com, and I can probably be found on whichever social media platform you prefer.
I've had short stories accepted by publications including Jim Baen's Universe and Tor.com. I specialize in dark science fiction, cheerful horror, and modern fairy tales. You can discover my fiction at my website, http://www.aswiebe.com.
My latest project is an online post-apocalyptic steampunk serial story about a circus traveling through the collapse of civilization, which can be found at http://www.circusofbrassandbone.com.
I also manage Aswiebe's Market List, a downloadable, sortable list of paying science fiction, fantasy, and horror markets.
