Julie Frost

MisCon 30 Attending Professional

Julie Frost writes every shade of speculative fiction and lives in Utah with her family--which consists of a three-legged cat and as many guinea pigs as people--and a collection of anteaters and Oaxacan carvings, some of which intersect. Her short fiction has appeared in Writers of the Future, StarShipSofa, Cosmos, Unlikely Story, Plasma Frequency, Stupefying Stories, and many other venues, and has been a Finalist at the Hidden Prize for Prose. Her first novel, "Pack Dynamics," was released in 2015 by WordFire Press. She whines about writing, a lot, at agilebrit.livejournal.com
