L. Ana Ellis, a sleep-deprived government worker by day, lets her imagination roam free while writing science fiction late into the night. After spending her days toiling over spreadsheets in a windowless cubicle with fluorescent lighting, and unbeknownst to her coworkers who think she spends her evenings watching cat videos, she spends her nights creating worlds that are more of a commentary on the present than an accurate prediction of the future. Speculating about how societies will change in the future fascinates her; she is undeterred that so far she has been wrong 100% of the time. When she’s not pondering how societies operate or writing about alternate realities, she enjoys Ren faires, conventions, and, as her coworkers suspect, watching cat videos. She lives in the Washington, DC area with her husband, two cats, and the occasional foster kitty.

L. Ana Ellis is the author of the Panacea science fiction trilogy. The trilogy has strong dystopian and cyberpunk vibes. Themes in the trilogy include artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and humanity’s relationship with technology. She publishes under the indie press Fire-Forged Books.
