About the Author

Never one for following the “rules,” Carrie Pack is an award-winning author of books in multiple genres, including Designs on You (2014), In the Present Tense (2016 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Bronze Award for Science Fiction) and Grrrls on the Side (2017). Her novels focus on characters finding themselves in their own time—something she experienced for herself when she came out as bisexual. She’s passionate about positive representation in her writing and has been a feminist before she knew what the word meant, thanks to a progressive and civic-minded grandmother. Coincidentally that’s also where she got her love of red lipstick and desserts. Carrie lives in Florida, or as she likes to call it, “America’s Wang.”
