Daughter of two Cuban political exiles, M.C.A. Hogarth was born a foreigner in the American melting pot and has had a fascination for the gaps in cultures and the bridges that span them ever since. She has been many things—web database architect, product manager, technical writer and massage therapist—but is currently a full-time parent, artist, writer and anthropologist to aliens, both human and otherwise.
Her fiction has variously been recommended for a Nebula, a finalist for the Spectrum, placed on the secondary Tiptree reading list and chosen for two best-of anthologies; her art has appeared in RPGs, magazines and on book covers.
Her current focus is new business models for artists and independent marketing and distribution innovations. It’s an exciting time to be working in the arts, with expanding choices for creative professionals willing to capitalize on those opportunities! Her first crowdfunded fiction project kicked off in 2004 before the word was even coined. M.C.A. has experimented with everything from “choose-your-own-adventure” style serials online to kickstarting creative projects and is looking forward to future experiments in using technology to bring art directly to the audience.
M.C.A. Hogarth also has bio pages on Wikipedia, TVTropes and WikiFur. There’s also a bio page at MCAHWiki, the repository for info about her fictional settings.
