Who am I?
A nerd. An engineer with about 30 years of experience with environmental compliance and sustainability management services, often with an information management spin. In other words, I design, build, and populate databases and create monitoring systems for tracking and reporting on pollutants.
I’m also a writer. A spinner of far-flung techie dreams—stories filled with planetary disaster, spaceships, rogue AI’s, planet-eating machines, sentient tumors… and people who struggle to survive on the fringes of the world.
I’m a feminist and a mom and a meme-magpie and a nature lover, among other things.
MJ Locke (or Morgan J. Locke) is my pseudonym for current works of science fiction. Prior works came out under Laura J. Mixon. She/her. You can call me Laura.
I also blog at laurajmixon.com.
