Abra Staffin-Wiebe loves dark science fiction, cheerful horror, and futuristic fairy tales. Dozens of her short stories have appeared at publications including Tor.com, Escape Pod, and Odyssey Magazine. She lives in Minneapolis, where she wrangles her children, pets, and the mad scientist she keeps in the attic. When not writing or wrangling, she collects folk tales and photographs whatever stands still long enough to allow it.
In addition, she speaks regularly on panels at writing/SF conventions, teaches at The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, and manages Aswiebe’s Market List, a resource for science fiction, fantasy, and horror writers. You may also catch her doing narration work on your favorite fiction podcast.
Her novella, The Unkindness of Ravens, is an epic fantasy coming-of-age novella about trickster gods and favors owed. She is also the author of A Circus of Brass and Bone, a post-apocalyptic story about a circus traveling through the collapse of civilization.
