Susan MacGregor is the author of The Tattooed Witch, The Tattooed Seer, and The Tattooed Queen (Five Rivers Publishing), a historical fantasy trilogy, set in an alternate 1550 inquisitional Spain (think gypsies, magic, flamenco, piracy, and Spanish colonization of the New World). The first book, The Tattooed Witch, was short-listed for a Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association Aurora Award in 2014. A prior editor for over twenty years with On Spec Magazine, her short fiction has been featured in On Spec, as well as anthologies, Divine Realms (Ravenstone Books), Northern Frights 5 (Mosaic Press), A Method to the Madness (Five Rivers Publishing), Urban Green Man (EDGE), Equus (Word Weaver Press), and The Dame Was Trouble (Coffin Hop Press). She’s written one non-fiction book on writing – The ABC’s of How NOT to Write Speculative Fiction (Copper Pig Writers Society), an SF writing primer, which she uses as the basis for writing workshops. She co-edited Tesseracts Fifteen: A Case of Quite Curious Tales (EDGE) and Tesseracts 22, Alchemy and Artifacts (EDGE). When she isn’t writing or editing, you can find her rehearsing and performing professionally as a singer and dancer of flamenco, or finding calm through painting soft pastel landscapes. Susan lives with her family in Edmonton.
