Justin C. Key

Justin C. Key is a speculative fiction writer and psychiatrist whose short stories have appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Strange Horizons, Tor.com, Escape Pod, and Lightspeed. Born and raised in Washington, DC, Justin had an early passion of bridging the gap between medicine and communities of color. His love of narrative and ability to connect patients to their personal stories led him to Psychiatry. He developed his own practice in Southern California and specializes in treating psychotic and mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and addiction. Justin’s debut collection, The World Wasn’t Ready For You, is forthcoming from HarperCollins. When Justin isn’t writing, working with patients, or exploring Los Angeles with his wife, he’s chasing after his three young (and energetic!) children.
