Dr. Valerie J. Mikles

I'm a PhD astronomer who defected from academia to work on weather satellites for NOAA. Ask me about being a scientist. I wrote/produced a series of short, comedic films about asexuality, because I'm asexual and wanted to see aces in action. I recently came out as agender and I got top surgery (and I want everyone to know). I always loved novel series as a kid, so I now write and publish my own sci-fi novel series. I'm here celebrating Book 6: The Confluence! I'm also branching out and will be publishing some stand-alone queer sci-fi stories next year.
