R L Tierney is a science-fiction author currently studying for an MA and trying to figure out what she wants to do in life. She used to be a geologist, so she can’t go anywhere without noticing beautiful rocks and pointing them out to people.

During her previous degrees she published two scientific papers (one in GSWE and the other in Geomorphology) and worked almost every summer in the Scottish tourism industry. Once, a guest brought her some rocks and it was the best day ever.

She can be contacted via twitter.
