Immigrant Of The Day: Caitlín Rebekah Kiernan of Ireland

by Kevin R. Johnson

Caitlín Rebekah Kiernan (Ireland)

Caitlin Caitlín Rebekah Kiernan (born May 26, 1964 in Skerries, Dublin, Ireland) is the author of many science fiction and dark fantasy works, including six novels, many comic books, more than one hundred published short stories, novellas, and vignettes.

As a small child, Kiernan moved to the United States with her mother. Much of her childhood was spent in the small town of Leeds, Alabama.  Kiernan attended college at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the University of Colorado at Boulder, studying geology and vertebrate paleontology, and she held both museum and teaching positions before finally turning to fiction writing in 1992.

Kiernan's first novel, The Five of Cups, was written in 1992-93 but was not published until 2003. Her first published short story was "Persephone," a dark science-fiction tale, released in 1995.

Kiernan has had short fiction selected for Year's Best Fantasy and Horror series, The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, and The Year's Best Science Fiction, and her short stories have been collected in several volumes.

Kiernan lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
