Lucie Archer is a genderqueer student of the universe who is obsessed with the stars, in love with beaches, and crazy about dudes falling in love. Her weaknesses include a big heart, the sun, self-doubt, and kryptonite… probably. Not the exact recipe for a supervillain, but she has plans to take over the world nonetheless.
Her first foray into nonacademic writing started with fanfiction—hardly an original origin story—but after a few years of honing her craft with other people’s characters, she realized she was perfectly capable of creating her own. Her underground lair, somewhere in Texas, is overflowing with them now as she prepares to unleash them on an unsuspecting world one book at a time.
As a realist, she works hard to write stories that are as honest and accurate as possible, regardless of whether that means staying up till 5am researching circumcision in the Ol’ West or refusing to quit until she knows exactly what the runway in Circle Hot Springs, Alaska consists of. (It’s gravel, in case you were wondering.)
When she’s not writing, she can be found tending to her garden, playing with her four-legged children, procrastinating, or planning world domination. Although, she spends an awful lot of time fending off random plot bunnies that threaten to derail her WIP’s.
Hobbies: cursing, history, sitting on beaches, nerdy puns, science, and playing video games
