The short of it
A former roving vagabond, Olivia Hennis currently lives in Pennsylvania. She previously worked as an editor for an online magazine, managed a Halloween park, and read tarot for a living.

Writing Happens Sometimes
Olivia is on hiatus from seeking representation for THE CLAWS THAT SCRATCH, a YA Urban Fantasy of three young women, their dual natures, and the confusion, betrayal, and helplessness of growing up.
Olivia is currently hard at work on the first novel in her Iron Garden adult urban fantasy series. You can enjoy short stories set in this world by joining her Patreon.
New Tales from the Iron Garden are often featured as the monthly short story reward. To read more shorts, check out the Iron Garden on Smashwords, or go directly to A TASTE OF FAERIE or HOW SHE GOT THOSE SCARS.

And I commissioned, content edited, and generally encouraged short stories as an editor there. Here are some of the ones I am most proud of working on, a lot which deal with sexuality, gender, queer romance, and others. (Also, reading some of them again, I’m remembering how I was not always the last person to get to edit them, and that some of them still have a need for more feminism.):
