C. L. Polk (they/them/she/her) wrote the Hugo-nominated Kingston Cycle, beginning with the World Fantasy Award-winning novel Witchmark. Their Subjective Chaos Kind of Award-winning novel The Midnight Bargain was a Canada Reads, Nebula, Locus, Ignyte, and World Fantasy Award finalist. Mx. Polk lives in Calgary on Treaty 7 land, among the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy, the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, and the Métis Nation (Region 3). They dwell in an apartment the same age as they are with too many books, not enough cats, and a yarn stash that could last a decade. A city person at heart, they menace the streets on rideshare scooters and ride a green bicycle with a basket on the front.
