About the Author
Holly Lisle crashed into languages head-on whenshe moved to Alaska at age nine---where she and the local Eskimo andIndian dialects never quite clicked. Her sole remembered sliver of Inuit allows her to ask for a cup of coffee. Sadly, she does not drinkcoffee.
Stints in Costa Rica and Guatemala as a slightly olderkid---where she got along much better with Spanish---and years ofinventing her own languages, codes, and ciphers eventually led her towrite novels set in other universes, other times, and otherdimensions...which makes a sort of offbeat sense if you really work hard to see it.
Holly Lisle has published more than thirty novelswith major publishers in the US and around the world, (includingHAWKSPAR and TALYN), is translated in a score of languages she CAN'Tread, and is also well-known online for her writing classes, and for one ofthe world's most opinionated online writing diaries at HollyLisle.com. With more than a million books in print via commercial publishing, she is now publishing herself.
