Rachael Acks is a writer, geologist, and sharp-dressed sir. In addition to her steampunk novella series, she’s had short stories in Strange Horizons, Waylines, Daily Science Fiction, Penumbra, and more. She’s an active member of SFWA, the Northern Colorado Writer’s Workshop, and Codex.
She loves movies, nerdy things, cats, and writing, and blogs about all of those and more whenever the mood strikes. When things get too exciting, she makes a cup of tea and then picks heavy things up and puts them back down again in a controlled fashion, because that’s just the sort of person she is.
Rachael is also a working scientist, and it should be understood that any and all opinions on this website are hers alone and reflect in no way upon her employer.
Rachael lives in Houston (where she bicycles, drinks tea, and twirls her ever so dapper mustache) with her two
furry little bastards cats.
