California native transplanted to Canada (via Japan), N. E. Chenier has learned to make the most of the rain by cozying up to the word processor. Parenthood has engendered an appreciation for flash fiction and for contests with deadlines. She also enjoys hiking, biking, swimming, yoga – just about anything done outdoors. Her recent fiction can be found at Perihelion, Abyss & Apex, and in the charity anthology Zombies for a Cure. You can find more of her work at her blog Spec-Fic Motley or follow her on Twitter @rowdy_phantom.
