A question for E.A. Petricone

Q: Do you often include animals in your stories? What role do they play?

A: Very nearly always! My father is a biology teacher and my mother is a Bird Person, and I inherited their love of animals and the natural world. Sometimes animals show up in my stories because they Mean Things, and sometimes they show up because why not. Where there is life, there are animals—they share the world whether my characters like it or not.

About E.A. Petricone

E.A. Petricone writes strange, dark, and often absurd fiction. She obsessively collects square and rectangle Post-It note pads in all colors and sizes and uses them to scribble on and paper all over her walls. Her notebook is just a 6×8 Post-It.

She is the friend who makes sure you have enough snacks—and if she sees your cat, she is going to try to start a conversation with it.

She was hesitant about the whole Twitter thing but has discovered it’s wicked fun to connect with other speculative SF/F writers and complain about writing. And of course talk about stories she loves (often with cute animal gifs). She lives in Massachusetts.
