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 Tiptree long list and chosen for two best-of anthologies; her art has appeared in RPGs, magazines and on book covers. M.C.A. Hogarth also served as Vice President of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) for three years.

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.

You can find her bio pages on Wikipedia, TVTropes and WikiFur. There’s also a bio page at MCAHWiki, the repository for info about her fictional settings.

    Hello Ms Hogarth from an Australian reader.
    I am a 65 year old male SF fan and have read novels by all of the old time authors.
    I recently found your “Earthrise” series which I found very entertaining but feel that at least one more novel could be gained from the story.
    Queen Lliolesa has to abdicate for Reese to become queen. Perhaps move to Chalice with Araelis and one of Alacazam’s buds
    Somebody (perhaps research by Hirianthial, Kis’eh’t and Sela) has to invent some treatment to give Reese and the Fuzzies longer life which will be heredity in future generations.
    Partners need to be found for Bryer and Kis’eh’t (perhaps they could do the longlife research)
    And what about Talithen’s Mother? What changes her?
    Does the false Queen become successful as a trader? Perhaps Talithen’s mother could decide to become also be a successful trader with her.
    Sorry there is perhaps 2 books there.

    With thanks for an excellent story (so far)
    Derek Gratz

    Just the way I feel also. At least one more book to finish Theresa’s story and the wedding she’s to have and family she and Hirianthial create. I wonder what their offspring would look like? All her friends too.
