About our featured author

Danny Bryn is a queer, disabled, non-binary speculative fiction author of the liberal Jesus-freak variety. When not writing, they conduct infectious disease surveillance in their hometown of San Diego, where they enjoy basking in the Santa Ana winds, hiking the brush-heavy slopes, and eating too many tacos.

They are the author of the independently published adult fantasy series These Treacherous Tides, which is set in a steampunk-inspired world of merfolk and begins with Our Bloody Pearl. Their next book Once Stolen will be published in July.
