EMILY SKRUtsKIE PRESENTS...
in conversation with Jessica Cluess
Emily Skrutskie will be providing the first glimpse into Hullmetal Girls to all of the lucky patrons of Chevalier's Books - another local author to fulfill your fiction needs.
Hullmetal Girls follows the travails of Aisha Un-Haad, who would do anything for her family. When her brother contracts a plague, she knows her janitor's salary isn't enough to fund his treatment. So she volunteers to become a Scela, a mechanically enhanced soldier sworn to protect and serve the governing body of the Fleet, the collective of starships they call home. If Aisha can survive the harrowing modifications and earn an elite place in the Scela ranks, she may be able to save her brother.
Emily Skrutskie is six feet tall. She was born in Massachusetts, raised in Virginia, and forged in the mountains above Boulder, Colorado. She holds a B.A. in Performing and Media Arts from Cornell University, where she studied an outrageous and demanding combination of film, computer science, and game design. She is the author of THE ABYSS SURROUNDS US, THE EDGE OF THE ABYSS, and the upcoming HULLMETAL GIRLS. She lives and writes in Los Angeles.
Jessica Cluess was born in Los Angeles, moved to Chicago, and then moved back when the weather became too weather-y. She wrote her first book, A Shadow Bright and Burning, while working at a coffee shop and selling lattes to the rich and famous. A graduate of Northwestern University, she uses her education to study the vast intricacies of the Victorian era before slapping sorcerers and monsters into the whole mess. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
