Vesna Kurilić is a historical fantasy writer and werewolf-loving, skirt-making librarian. Her main literary focus is reclaiming local history on behalf of non-binary, queer folks like herself, and making it accessible and relatable to readers. She’s the author of the alternative history mystery series Ranger Paraversum.

A native and resident of Rijeka, Croatia, she has earned three SFERA awards (2012, 2014 and 2018) and one Artefakt (2018) for her fiction. Other than history, architecture and sapphic ladies, she’s passionate about playing sci-fi movie songs on the ukulele and doing jigsaw puzzles. For tips and tricks on writing and inside info, check out her blog, Skirts’n’Wolves. To get in touch, find Vesna on Twitter and Facebook or come meet the resident furry (and clawy) writer’s assistants over at her Instagram.
