ABOUT K. CERES WRIGHT: Daughter to a U.S. Army father, K. Ceres Wright has lived in Anchorage, AK; Chicago, IL; Baltimore, MD; Frankfurt, Oberursel, and Munich, Germany; Seoul, Korea; and the Washington Metropolitan Area. She attended undergraduate school at the University of Maryland, College Park, with a double major in economics and finance, then worked for 10 years as a credit and treasury analyst before deciding to change careers.
Wright received her Master’s degree in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University in Greensburg, PA, and Cog was her thesis novel for the program. Wright’s science fiction poem “Doomed” was a nominee for the Rhysling Award, the Science Fiction Poetry Association’s highest honor. Her work has appeared in Hazard Yet Forward; Genesis: An Anthology of Black Science Fiction; Many Genres, One Craft; and The 2008 Rhysling Anthology.
K. Ceres Wright’s cyberpunk novel Cog is one of the debut releases from Dog Star Books, the new science fiction imprint from Raw Dog Screaming Press. Cog is a near-future science fiction thriller set in a world of corporate intrigue and fuel-cell economy slums that delivers satisfying doses of action, technological extrapolation, and social commentary. I’ve taken a few moments to ask Ceres about her writing career and her new novel, which I found to be a compelling and enjoyable read.
