Rine Karr (rin-ē kär) (she/they) is a daydreamer, writing science fiction and fantasy by moonlight, and a cog in the machine, editing and coding by daylight. In what feels like another lifetime, Rine studied anthropology and archaeology, international human rights and political economy, and Buddhist studies and art history at the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as worked in museums. Now, Rine relishes in the free time that being away from academia affords and enjoys devouring books, drinking tea, and meditating on the universe. Rine grew up under the mist of three enormous waterfalls on the traditional land of the Haudenosaunee and Wenrohronon and has lived in Hong Kong and London. Rine is currently and almost always in the midst of writing a novel.
Additionally, Rine has moonlighted as a contributing writer at Girls in Capes, a chief copy editor and contributing writer at the three–time Eisner Award winning Women Write About Comics, and a blog formatter and financial administrator for WriteOnCon. Rine participated in the Cybils Awards as a first round panelist for the Young Adult Fiction and Young Adult Speculative Fiction categories in 2020 and as a second round judge for the Young Adult Speculative Fiction category in 2021.
