Courtney Floyd spent the first twenty-four years of her life living on the borders of the underworld. She learned to write in between tarantula turf wars, apocalyptic dust storms, and a thirteen year drought in which even the river Lethe went dry. She collects books, bones, and beetles – in no particular order of importance – and uses them in elaborate rituals to invoke her muses. Having escaped the borderlands, Courtney now lives in Oregon with her husband, her hellhound, and a chatty black cat who is definitely not plotting anything.
Her work has appeared in Fireside Fiction Magazine and Tales of the Talisman.
When she’s not writing, Courtney’s probably working on her Ph.D in nineteenth-century British literature, grading papers, or walking the aforementioned hellhound.
She’s also the creator, producer, and co-host of Victorian Scribblers podcast, a biography/history/literature podcast about the lives and work of lesser-known Victorian writers, which you can learn more about here.
You can follow her erratic, cryptic, and sometimes arcane musings here and keep up with her more frequent but no less cryptic and arcane musings on Twitter (@cannfloyd).
