Rine Karr (rin-ē kär) (she/they) is a daydreamer—writing science fiction and fantasy—by moonlight and a cog in the machine—copy editing—by daylight. In what feels like another lifetime, Rine studied anthropology and archaeology, international human rights, and Buddhist studies and art history at the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as worked in museums. Now, Rine is never without a book and is constantly meditating and musing on the universe. Rine grew up under the mist of three enormous waterfalls on the traditional land of the Haudenosaunee and Wenrohronon and, after living in Hong Kong and London, now lives in the shadow of a mountain range on the traditional land of the Arapaho, Cheyenne, Sioux, and Ute. 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 twotime Eisner Award winning Women Write About Comics, and as a blog formatter and financial administrator for WriteOnCon. In 2020, Rine participated in the Cybils Awards as a first round panelist for the Young Adult Fiction/Speculative Fiction categories.
