Erin Barbeau (ze/zir) is a nonbinary science fiction author and entomologist who just wants to share how cool bugs are. Zir favorite bugs are caterpillars. When Ze isn’t poking insects or writing about queers in space, ze can be found dressing up like a frilly cupcake to hang out at libraries and museums.

Erin’s work has appeared in Vulture Bones, Journal of Hymenoptera Research, and soon Fantasy and Science Fiction.
