Short biography
Courtney Schafer was born in Georgia, raised in Virginia, and spent her childhood dreaming of adventures in the jagged mountains and sweeping deserts of her favorite fantasy novels. She escaped the East Coast by attending Caltech for college, where she obtained a B.S. in electrical engineering, and also learned how to rock climb,
backpack, ski, scuba dive, and stack her massive book collection so it wouldn't crush anyone in an earthquake. After college she moved to the climber's paradise of Boulder, Colorado, and somehow managed to get a masters degree in electrical engineering from the University of Colorado in between racking up ski days and peak climbs.

She now works in the aerospace industry and is married to an Australian scientist who shares her love for speculative fiction and mountain climbing. She's had to slow down a little on the adrenaline sports since the birth of her son, but only until he's old enough to join in. She writes every spare moment she's not working or adventuring with her family.
