Mary E. Lowd grew up in a house with three cats. Her favorite pastime was pretending they could talk and writing stories about them. She currently lives in Oregon with her husband, two children, three dogs, four cats, and zero otters. She still pretends animals can talk and writes stories about them.
Most of Mary’s work is science fiction, including near future explorations of memory; space opera with fantastic aliens and technologies; and far future sci-furry in which cats and dogs have evolved and built their own society on the ruins of human civilization.
More than forty of Mary’s short stories have been published, and her novels, Otters In Space and Otters In Space 2: Jupiter, Deadly, are available from FurPlanet. Her fiction has been nominated thirteen times in the Ursa Major Awards and has won a Cóyotl Award.
