Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. I am large. I contain multitudes. – Walt Whitman, “Song of Myself”

wpid-20141109_150945-1.jpgSan Francisco-born author Lena Corazon writes speculative fiction with a focus on fantasy and steampunk.  She builds worlds filled with beauty and danger, populated by fierce women, dashing men, and delightfully evil antagonists. She has a weakness for Thai cuisine, an obsession with high-heels, and an undying love of Byronic heroes.  Now in her seventh year of graduate school, she dreams of the day when she will become a PhD-wielding badass of epic proportions. When Lena isn’t writing novels or wrestling with the beast known as Academia, she can be found adventuring around California with her boyfriend, exploring historical sites, or swooning over BBC-produced period dramas.
