Melody Steiner is a community college librarian and a virtual reference chat operator, with a Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Washington. She’s the author of a small press fantasy novel as well as writings in various speculative poetry and SFF magazines under her penname S.R. Tombran.
She’s worked at a variety of bookish places; public libraries, university libraries, and a brief stint at an art museum. She’s also served as a first reader for a SFF magazine and a flash fiction anthology. When she’s not helping students at the college or chatting online with library patrons across the country, you can find her in her favorite chair, hunched over her computer with a coffee beside her, writing.
