C.A. Hartman specializes in writing science fiction with badass female leads. An academic scientist gone rogue, Hartman’s books have been praised for their great characters, intricate worlds, and their intriguing but understandable science. A graduate of the University of Colorado, Hartman earned her PhD in Behavioral Genetics and worked as a scientist for 11 years. She lives in Denver with her husband, artist Chris Voeller, and has a special fondness for good TV, the desert, aviator sunglasses, and dark roast coffee (decaf, of course, because you DON'T want to be around her when she's caffeinated).
