Biography[edit]

Hurley was born in Washington state and has lived in Fairbanks, Alaska; Durban, South Africa and Chicago. She currently resides in Dayton, Ohio.[1][2]

Hurley has been publishing short fiction since 1998,[3] and has been writing novels since 2010.[4] From 2013 to 2021 Hurley wrote regular columns for Locus magazine about the craft and business of fiction writing,[5] and has published non-fiction pieces in The Atlantic, Boing Boing, Entertainment Weekly, Bitch (magazine), Tor.com, Uncanny Magazine, HuffPost, The Mary Sue, Female First, Writer's Digest, and LA Weekly.[6] Hurley is a graduate of Clarion West.[7]

Her first novel trilogy, the Bel Dame Apocrypha, is what Hurley called "bugpunk": set on a far-future desert planet whose technology is based on insects and whose matriarchal, Islam-inspired cultures are locked in perpetual war. Her second trilogy, the Worldbreaker Saga, is grimdark epic fantasy that aims to subvert the genre's tropes such as the hero's journey.[8] She has also published a standalone space opera novel, The Stars are Legion, in 2017,[9] and the military science fiction time travel novel, The Light Brigade, in 2019.[10]

Her first nonfiction book, the essay collection The Geek Feminist Revolution, was published in 2016.[11]
