Gillian Chisom -


Gillian Chisom I am currently pursuing a PhD in History at the University of California, Berkeley. Though I write urban fantasy rather than historical fiction, my scholarly and fictional writings both display my passion for women’s voices and stories. A lifelong fantasy reader, during the last few years I have wrestled with the genre’s flaws and possibilities, and have become committed to writing stories with queer teen girls at their centers. When I’m not reading seventeenth-century witch trials or writing about lesbians dealing with supernatural mayhem, I like to watch TV and make my own clothes (sometimes at the same time).
