Cait (pronounced like ‘cat’) Gordon is originally from Verdun, Québec, and has been living in the suburbs of Ottawa since 1998. She worked for over two decades as a technical writer, publishing user guides about everything from software applications to airplane simulators. Her joys include cosplaying as a fashionista dalek, watching sci-fi or fantasy series that are character-driven, reading books from authors she’s met, and baking . . . so much baking. In the ‘90s she doodled a comic about a green snouty man named Virj Ofreesin, his houseplant Sonny, and his pet Splot. She felt it was time to share these characters with the universe. Life in the ‘Cosm is her first novel.
