Becky Chambers

Je suis née et j'ai
grandi en Californie.
Après avoir étudié
les arts du spectacle,
j'ai travaillé en tant
qu'administratrice
de compagnies de
théâtre. En 2010 , j'ai
fui le cirque et me suis
lancée dans l'écriture
à plein temps. Désor-
mais je suis rédactrice technique dans la journée
et j'écris la nuit.
J'ai vécu en Écosse et en Islande, mais je suis
aujourd'hui retournée à mes racines, en Californie,
où je vis avec mon époux. Lorsque je n'écris pas,
on peut me voir jouer à des jeux, lire ou surfer sur
Internet. L'espace est un de mes sujets de prédilec-
tion, j'en parle beaucoup.
