R.S.A. Garcia lives and works in the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago with a large family and too many dogs–although only one belongs to her.

She decided to be an author when she discovered that Louisa May Alcott had been published at the age of 8. Determined to waste no more time, she finished her first collection of stories at 10. She has not stopped writing since, and indulged herself in a deep love of all speculative fiction despite the best advice of every English teacher she has ever had.

She has published short fiction with Clarkesworld, Abyss and Apex and Truancy Magazine.  Her debut novel ‘LEX TALIONIS’, a science fiction mystery, received a starred review from Publishers Weekly and won the IPPY Silver Medal for Best Scifi/Fantasy/Horror Ebook 2015.

She is currently working on the sequel to Lex Talionis and a new science fantasy novel inspired by Caribbean and African folklore.
