C.G. Aubrey (Cristal G. Thompson) (she/her) holds dual-masters in US History & Religious Studies with a specialization in the intersection of war and religion. Growing up in South Carolina, she was drawn at an early age to the frustrating futility of war and the malleability of its memory. Now, she lives with the love of her life and one very rotten Dumpster dog in eastern North Carolina, where she writes atmospheric fantasy filled with political and family drama, mystery, magic, and romance. She is currently working on the Danziger Forgeries, a second world, southern noir fantasy featuring an own-voices, autistic main character and queer-normative world culture.
