Joanne Rixon lives in the shadow of an active volcano with a rescue chihuahua named after a dinosaur. She is an organizer with North Seattle Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers, and her stories have appeared in Crossed Genres, Liminal Stories, and Reckoning 2, among others. You can find her yelling about politics and poetry on twitter @JoanneRixon.
