EJ Hespa Mann (E. H. Mann) is an emerging author based in Melbourne, Australia (they/them/she/her). They write fantasy and science-fiction about folk who don’t quite fit, with a preference for short fiction and a dedication to queer and other minority representation. Their stories have appeared in Mother of Invention, Aurealis, Fabled Journey III, and Luna Station Quarterly.
A park ranger and professional nature nerd by day, in her spare time she writes, blogs, knits, offers asexuality sensitivity readings, wrestles her brain weasels, and wonders why she doesn’t have any spare time. Her life has made a lot more sense since mid-2019, which is when she was finally diagnosed with ADHD.
They are asexual, which seems perfectly normal to them, but they’ve noticed other people sometimes find it confusing, so they like taking opportunities to talk about it in public, such as at Continuum Speculative Fiction Convention and Queermance. Their gender identity is a work in progress.
Unlike every other writer in existence, they do not own a cat. But it’s only a matter of time.
