Kat Otis writes speculative fiction – everything from historical fantasy to urban fantasy, with a bit of science fiction thrown in for good measure. She lived a peripatetic life for almost two decades and is now rather bemused to be living in one place; she’s not recycling her book boxes just yet! You can find her on the Codex Writers forums when she’s probably supposed to be writing and she has also been known to log into her SFWA account when she’s hard-core procrastinating.
