Biography

Genevieve Valentine’s first novel, Mechanique: A Tale of the Circus Tresaulti , won the 2012 Crawford Award and was nominated for the Nebula. Her second novel is speakeasy fairy tale The Girls at the Kingfisher Club. Her third novel, political thriller Persona, is out now from Saga Press; its sequel, Icon, is forthcoming in June 2016. She has written CATWOMAN for DC Comics, and XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS from Dynamite.

Her short fiction has appeared in Clarkesworld, Strange Horizons, Journal of Mythic Arts, Lightspeed, and others, and the anthologies Federations, The Living Dead 2, After, Teeth, Hanzai Japan, and more; stories have been nominated for the World Fantasy Award and the Shirley Jackson Award, and have appeared in several Best of the Year anthologies.

Her nonfiction and reviews have appeared at NPR.org, The AV Club, Strange Horizons, io9.com, LA Review of Books, Interfictions, and The New York Times, and she is a co-author of pop-culture book Geek Wisdom (Quirk Books).

Her appetite for bad movies is insatiable, a tragedy she tracks on her blog.
