C.M. Spivey is a speculative fiction writer, author of the high fantasy Trident Chronicles series (formerly as Cait Spivey), and the paranormal series, The Unliving. His enduring love of fantasy started young, thanks to authors like Tolkien, J.K. Rowling, Diane Duane, Tamora Pierce, and many more. Now, he explores the rules and ramifications of magic in his own works—and as a panromantic asexual trans man, he’s committed to queering his favorite genres.
In addition to working on these and many other projects, he is currently serving as Marketing Director for REUTS Publications, and works as a freelance editor. He has interned with both the Bent Agency and Corvisiero Literary Agency, and has served as a developmental editor for REUTS and Curiosity Quills Press.
He has a B.A. in English Literary Studies (and yes, he’s heard that Avenue Q song). He worked on his college’s literary magazine, The York Review, for two years, first as Prose Editor and then as Managing Editor. He was also a contributor. He has had two plays performed in the college’s annual Student One-Acts.
In his spare time, he plans his next tattoo (there will always be a next tattoo) and falls further behind on his to-be-read list. Anything left over is devoted to his tireless quest to make America read more. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his darling husband Matt and adorable dog Jay.
