Chatting With Sherri welcomes Writers of the Future winner; Carrie Callahan!
Carrie is a Writers of the Future winner for Writers of the Future Volume 35 and her winning story, "Dirt Road Magic!
Though a lifelong writer, Carrie Callahan has only recently found her voice with what she calls Dirt Spec—a style that mixes gritty realism with speculative elements. Dirt Spec comes from her experiences growing up sub-working-class and not seeing herself reflected in the shiny prose of high-gloss fiction. Writers of the Future is Carrie’s first professional sale, and only the beginning of her exploration of SF through a dirty lens.
When she isn’t writing about imaginary worlds (or teaching others how to), Carrie can be found exploring the digital worlds of virtual reality in VRChat. She lives with her patient husband and adorable dog in the hills of bourbon country, Kentucky.
