Author: Althea Claire Duffy

Althea Claire Duffy grew up on books in western Massachusetts, and first said she wanted to be a writer when she was four. She gave up on that ambition in her twenties, acquired the traditional writer’s resume of lots of different short-term jobs, and got back into actual writing in her early thirties. In 2014, she sold her first novella.

She lives in a tiny Boston apartment, has day jobs in a cubicle and a library, and sings in a classical chorus. When not occupied with these things, reading, or writing, she’s usually playing computer or tabletop games, or exploring her city and its art museums. A soft, fuzzy center is hidden beneath her cynical, prickly exterior, sort of like an artichoke.
