Elisabeth Hegmann is a speculative fiction writer whose work has always been informed richly and powerfully by music. She grew up in a family of classically-trained dreamers and musicians, and, despite brave attempts otherwise, she has failed to understand anything about the box, let alone how to fit inside it. She has a B.A. in creative writing from IU and an MFA in fiction from NCSU.

In addition to slipstream stories, novellas, and novels, Elisabeth writes librettos for musical stage works. Her work has been published in a variety of journals, produced on regional stages, and won several small awards. She lives in her hometown of North Vernon, Indiana, where she works diligently to be worthy of the love of a dog and teaches every imaginable kind of writing to tolerant college students.
