Adriana Kantcheva

Adriana Kantcheva is a Bulgarian writer of (often) speculative fiction. She lived in six countries before settling in southern Germany with her husband and their son and twin daughters. She has a Ph.D. in molecular biology and has worked as a science editor but left all that to focus on her writing—specifically, her debut epic fantasy novel. Her short fiction has appeared in Stupefying Stories, Short Circuit, Shoreline of Infinity, and elsewhere. Adriana is a certified yoga teacher and meditates regularly, which helps her keep a handle on healthy writing habits, the demands of parenting, and life’s unexpected turns.
