Meet the Instructors
I’m a Trekkie, a Jedi, a Space Case, and, above all, a voracious reader of speculative fiction. As a teen, I learned to write thanks to Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern fandom. After a brief stint writing Very Serious Poetry in college and graduate school, I returned to my first love–sci-fi. Today, I write space opera for teenagers from my home in New York State. My first novel, Starglass, debuts in 2013 from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. I’m represented by Michelle Andelman of Regal Literary. Find out more about me at www.phoebenorth.com.
I came to science fiction relatively late, being a bigger fan of fantasy during my teenage years. Now I enjoy speculative fiction of all kinds, particularly anything with a literary bent. I studied English at NUI Maynooth in Ireland, and now write science fiction for teenagers. Follow my exploits at www.seanwills.com.
