Jane Barr graduated from Indiana University with a bachelor’s degree in English and earned a Master of Liberal Arts from the University of Chicago. She’s worked in academic publishing for over ten years and has spent much of that time writing and critiquing in volunteer online writing communities. Jane’s favorite genres tend to be sci-fi and urban fantasy, but she will happily read anything she can get her hands on. Jane spent many happy years living in Chicago but now lives in northwest Indiana where she can more easily spoil her nephews and work on her dream of planting an orchard.
