Meet the writer-slash-editor-slash-troublemaker

Wendy N. Wagner grew up in a town so tiny it didn’t even have a post office. With no television reception, she became a rabid reader, waiting impatiently for the bookmobile’s fortnightly visit to her tiny hometown. Today, her family struggles to find room for her expanding book collection in their Portland, Oregon, home. She really likes books about horror movies, circuses, folk art, gardening, and vegan cooking.

Ms. Wagner’s poetry and short fiction has appeared in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Farrago’s Wainscot, and the anthologies CTHULHU FHTAGN!Armored, and The Way of the Wizard.  Her first novel, Skinwalkers, a Pathfinder Tales adventure, was released 2014 from Paizo Press. She is the Managing/Associate Editor of both Lightspeed Magazine and Nightmare Magazine, and this year she is the Guest Editor of Queers Destroy Horror!. She also served as the Nonfiction Editor of Women Destroy Science Fiction! and Women Destroy Fantasy!.

 Ms. Wagner is a regular blogger on the Inkpunks publishing blog and a twitter junkie (@wnwagner). You can contact her at wendy(at)
