When Shannon Liao sees an internet video of a man doing what seems to be impossible, she finds a rabbit-hole of human-Bot interaction, extreme body modification and, possibly, the solution to all her problems.
Nicole M. Taylor was an only child, born deep in the corn-ears of rural Michigan where she honed her talents for being supercilious, eating pop-tarts and making up strange fictional situations.
Today, she lives in San Jose with her husband and a small fetal alien named Magoo. She writes speculative fiction about witches, ghosts, robots, reptoid aliens and pianists. She also works occasionally as a ghostwriter, collaborating on everything from historical memoirs to medical thrillers.
Her first YA book series, Bots, is available from Epic Press in August, 2015.
