About the author

Venessa Giunta is a writer of weird things. She is the author of the urban fantasy Soul Cavern series.

Venessa holds an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University and has worked on the editorial side of publishing since 2008. Her non-fiction essay “Demystifying What Editors Want” can be found in the book, Many Genres, One Craft.

She is active in convention life, having held a number of organizational positions over the years and is currently Second to the Director of the Writers Track at Dragon Con, a SF/F fan convention with more than 80,000 attendees. She is also the WRITE Track Director for Multiverse Con. A new, inclusive, SF/F/H convention in Atlanta, scheduled for October 18-20, 2019.

She is a teacher at heart — editing is really just teaching one-on-one — and offers classes and workshops for conventions and writing groups. Helping other writers is one of her favorite things in the history of ever.

Venessa lives with her hubby in Atlanta, Georgia, and shares a home with three cats who all seem to think they rule the castle, but none of which pay the mortgage.
