Tori Curtis writes sci fi/fantasy with a focus on LGBT and disability issues. She grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in the oughts, so it was probably inevitable. Her greatest aspiration is to be an icon, at least among gay speculative fiction authors of her generation. Failing that, she would be happy to have something to brag about at family parties.

In her spare time, Tori is one of those people who actually likes paperwork and putting a smile in her voice. After a brief stint at seeing the world through a call center in Chicago, she finally took her grandfather’s advice, gave up on that foolishness, and moved back home where they have trees. She now lives with her wife in a beautiful scenic upstate New York village where nearly anyone she knows might drop by for dinner.
