Get to know Odessa Cole


Let's just say I'm an old fart and leave it that.

When did you start writing?

My first story was written in 5th grade, not sci fi or fantasy, and about what you would expect quality-wise for that age.

When and what and where did you first get published?

A sci fi piece was published on Revolution SF in 2004 - an aliens-next-door thing.

Why do you write?

I get ideas that make me look at the world in a different way, and I hope they do the same for the readers.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy?

I like to imagine a future that builds on now, not necessarily in a positive way, to make us think about what we're doing and where we're headed.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story?

Oh, so difficult to choose just one - I very much like the Diving stories from Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and I'm a fan of Allen M. Steele.

What are you trying to say with your fiction?

I like to think my theme generally is "There's more here than meets the eye."

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?

"She always kept us  laughing."
