Charlotte Victoria (they/them) is a writer, editor, artist, guerrilla forester, and professional 90s kid based in New York's Hudson Valley. They are about to receive a BA in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from SUNY New Paltz in May, 2020. They attended the College of Mount Saint Vincent from 2009 to 2011, then founded The Fox Hat Review, Nerdfighteria's first literary magazine, in 2013.


Their current projects include a sci-fi epic about a dark and political world of mermaids, The Undine Isles, which you can explore on this website by clicking on The Undine Isles tab above. As a member of the LGBT community, Charlotte is deeply passionate about diversity in speculative fiction.

Charlotte's weird tree fixation also predisposes them to a passion for an activity they describe as guerrilla forestry (more on that soon). They have also worked as a programmer in public libraries for 6 years. You can find them geeking out to fandoms and gardening with their 10-year-old turtle Luisa via social media.

They occasionally update their blog, www.gaymermaidnovelist.com, and can be reached at gaymermaidnovelist (at) gmail (dot) com.
