Monalisa Foster’s writing career really began when she taught herself English by reading and translating Heinlein juveniles at the public library. After she devoured the juvenile section, she moved on to the grown-up books. She made her first professional sale to Kristine Katherine Rusch, a short story called “Pretending to Sleep,” but her first published work was Bellona’s Gift in Terra Nova. She’s self-published novels and novellas in her Ravages of Honor epic space opera series. Her short stories have been published in Fantastic Hope, The Founder Effect, World Breakers, Robosoldiers, and The Ross 248 Project. While space opera is her favorite genre to write, she considers herself genre-fluid and has written in several speculative subgenres, Romance, and Literature. She is currently working on sequels, both to Threading the Needle and in her Ravages of Honor series. Monalisa graduated from ASU with dreams of becoming an astrophysicist. Instead she designed and tested semiconductors, worked on an engineering master’s degree, and then tackled the hardest job on Earth—motherhood. When her kids were old enough to go to school she kept herself busy by doing volunteer work at a hospital and was recruited to run radiation oncology and nuclear medicine research programs.
