Tina Connolly (she/her) writes fantastical stories for kids, teens, and grown-ups. Some of them are serious and some of them involve flying bananas. Her stories and books have been finalists for the Hugo, Nebula, Norton, Locus, and World Fantasy Awards.

Her books include the Ironskin fantasy trilogy from Tor Books, the Seriously Wicked YA series from Tor Teen, and the forthcoming Choose Your Own Adventure book, Glitterpony Farm.

Her narrations have appeared in over a hundred audiobooks and podcasts. She co-hosts Escape Pod and runs the Parsec-winning flash fiction podcast Toasted Cake.

If she's not busy working on one of the above projects, you might also find her teaching writing, drawing cat cartoons, making strange noises on the ukulele, or (occasionally) blissfully napping in a hammock.
