Bo Balder is a freelance writer who lives and works in the ancient Dutch city of Utrecht, close to Amsterdam. When she isn’t writing, you can find her madly designing knitwear, painting, and reading anything and everything from Kate Elliott to Iain M. Banks or Jared Diamond. She will be the first Dutch author to have published a story in the famous F&SF (Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine) , forthcoming in September 2015. Her other short fiction has appeared in Penumbra, Spark, and quite a few anthologies. Her SF novel The Wan was published in summer 2015 by Pink Narcissus Press.
