Sionnach (pronounced shuhn ukh) Wintergreen is a genderqueer author of epic fantasy and adult fantasy. (She uses feminine personal pronouns because she has lived most of her life responding to them.) Her character-driven stories usually involve misfits because she has always been one. Her experiences as a bartender, dominatrix, preschool teacher, and grant writer for an animal rescue group color her works. She lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband and five spoiled-rotten furkids. She also has a wonderful adult son.
