Our next NW Voices event features Software Engineer Curtis C. Chen

Once a Silicon Valley software engineer, Curtis C. Chen (陳致宇) now writes stories and runs puzzle games near Portland, Oregon. His debut novel Waypoint Kangaroo (a 2017 Locus Awards and Endeavour Award Finalist) is the first in a series of funny science fiction spy thrillers. He has written for the Realm originals Echo ParkNinth Step Murders, and Machina.

Curtis' short fiction has appeared in Playboy Magazine, Aliens vs. Predators: Ultimate PreyDaily Science Fiction, and elsewhere. His homebrew cat feeding robot was displayed in the "Worlds Beyond Here" exhibit at Seattle's Wing Luke Museum. He is a graduate of the Clarion West and Viable Paradise writers' workshops.

Want to know a secret? There are visual clues hidden in the KANGAROO book covers that lead to online puzzle trails! Finding the rabbit holes is left as an exercise for the reader.
