Hester J. Rook is an itinerant Australian with an unhealthy obsession with myth, dead languages and the circus. She spends a lot of time writing speculative fiction and upside down on a trapeze – not usually at the same time. She is one of a team of editors running Twisted Moon, a magazine of erotic speculative poetry. You can find her on Twitter at @kitemonster.
