Aliette de Bodard is a science fiction and fantasy writer who was born in the US, but grew up in France. Despite growing up in the gorgeous city of Paris, her parents insisted that she speak English from an early age and her books are available in the English language.

She was interested in science fiction from a young age through Isaac Asimov and began her interest in fantasy thanks to Ursula Le Guin’s The Earthsea Quartet. She went to college for engineering and began writing as a distraction from her course load. She found a real love for it during this time and decided to attend Orson Scott Card’s Literary Bootcamp to sharpen her skills. She would then win a writing contest, the Writers of the Future, and things took off from there.
