Kate Kanno writes under what would be her real name —  were her country to join the 21st century and allow her to marry her partner of sixteen years.

Under her “real” name, she has published essays and articles in venues large and small. She has also just completed work on her first screenplay for a fairly major studio. She’s not sure how the movie will turn out, but for the first, albeit limited, time she’s been able to eat and pay rent from her creative work. This makes her happy.

Her next challenge is the world of speculative fiction, a genre that she has far more respect for, and far less confidence in cracking.
