Beth Cato

Nebula-nominated Beth Cato is the author of the Clockwork Dagger duology and the Blood of Earth Trilogy from Harper Voyager.

Her newest novel is Call of Fire.

Cato is a Hanford, California native transplanted to the Arizona desert, where she lives with her husband, son, and requisite cat.

Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Cato's reply:
I recently read a fun forthcoming debut novel by Joseph Brassey, entitled Skyfarer. I first saw it described as "Star Wars meets Final Fantasy," and that's pretty accurate. There are a lot of space opera-like elements, but it's entirely set on a fantasy world abounding with powerful magic. There are genre tropes aplenty, but they gave the book a cozy feel, and Brassey kept subverting the tropes in delightful ways. I also must add that this book has one of my favorite covers for the whole year. Skyfarer comes out in September!
