The Update Welcomes Alli Martin
Alli Martin is a writer, editor, and film lover living in Orlando, Florida. She pursued creative writing at the University of Central Florida, where she completed a thesis collection of fiction and literary nonfiction. She has been working for the past ten years in educational publishing, longing for an opportunity to become more involved in the alternate history community.
Since learning about steampunk in 2007, Alli has been working on short fiction in the genre and slowly hammering away at a collaborative novel with her writing partner. She mostly writes within the Victorian period, but is also intrigued by steampunk stories set in the Far East, disealpunk, and war stories in general.
Her work appears in the steampunk anthology Dreams of Steam II: Brass and Bolts. She talks about alternate-history perspective whenever possible as a co-host of the weekly podcast Wrong Opinions About Movies. She can be found on Twitter as @selfwinding, discussing steampunk, film, writing, and hockey.
