Mira Grant – Ask Me Anything! : sciencefiction

Drive a Ferrari 458!


I’m Mira Grant; I write urban fantasy and medical science fiction and weird stories about cheerleaders fighting monsters because why not. I also watch too many horror movies, read a lot of comics, and spend a lot of time wrangling my three enormous blue cats. I have a Classic Siamese and two Maine Coons, the smaller of which weighs twenty-three pounds.

I live in a creepy, crumbling old farmhouse deep in the San Francisco Bay Area, in a town that was mostly rural up until ten years ago, and has now gone very suburban, which explains why I want to move to the woods as soon as humanly possible. I do still have a day job, and work for an international non-profit dedicated to bridging the digital divide by providing technological solutions. I actually know what that means, but it took me a while to figure it out.

I currently put out four books a year between my two identities, because that’s not a lot or anything, as well as a lot of short fiction. My latest book is PARASITE. Guess what that’s about! All three of the books in my Newsflesh trilogy (FEED, DEADLINE, and BLACKOUT) were nominated for Hugo awards, which was really nice, and being two people makes it easier to get away with writing this many books.

I like cornfields, haunted houses, chainsaws, and going to Disney Parks.

I will be back at 7PM Central to answer questions.
