Katherine Quevedo was born and raised just outside of Portland, Oregon, where she works as an analyst. She attended Santa Clara University in Silicon Valley and holds undergraduate degrees in English and Business Economics. She earned her MBA from Portland State University. She has studied abroad in England, Chile, and Argentina. She lives in Beaverton, Oregon, with her husband and two sons. When she isn’t writing speculative fiction or the occasional poem, she enjoys watching movies, singing, playing old-school video games, belly dancing, attending soccer and basketball games, making spreadsheets, doing Zumba, going on light hikes, visiting zoos, and snorkeling whenever travel allows.
Her stories have been selected for multiple volumes of Best Indie Speculative Fiction, and her poetry has received an honorable mention in the Helen Schaible International Sonnet Contest. Her writing appears in a variety of magazines, anthologies, and podcasts. She is a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) and the Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association (SFPA).
