Selina Rosen lives in rural Arkansas with her partner, her parrot Ricky, assorted fish and fowl—both inside and out, several milk goats, an undetermined number of barn cats and her dogs, Spud and Keri. Besides writing, editing and taking care of the farm, she’s a gardener, carpenter, rock mason, electrician (NOT a plumber), Torah scholar and sword fighter. In her spare time she creates water gardens, builds furniture, and adds to her ongoing creation of the “Great Wall of Kibler.”
Selina’s short fiction has appeared in several magazines and anthologies including Sword and Sorceress 16, Such A Pretty Face, Distant Journeys, three of the MZB Fantasy Mags, Tooth and Claw, Turn the Other Chick and Anthology At the End of the Universe, just to name a few. Her critically acclaimed story entitled “Ritual Evolution” appeared in the first of the new Thieves World anthologies, Turning Points, and her second TW story, “Gathering Strength,” appeared in the new TW anthology Enemies of Fortune. The Bubba Chronicles is a collection of her short fiction that features—strangely enough—bubbas.
Her novels include Queen of Denial, Recycled, Chains of Freedom, Chains of Destruction, Strange Robby, The Host trilogy, Fire & Ice, Hammer Town, Reruns and novellas entitled “The Boatman” and “Material Things,” and Bad Lands, a gonzo-mystery novel co-written with Laura J. Underwood from Five Star Mystery (Techno Books).
In her capacity as editor-in-chief of Yard Dog Press, Ms. Rosen has edited several anthologies, including the award-winning Bubbas of the Apocalypse, The Four Bubbas of the Apocalypse: Flatulence, Halitosis, Incest and … Ned, International House of Bubbas and two collections of “modern” fairy tales—the Stoker-nominated Stories That Won’t Make Your Parents Hurl and More Stories That Won’t Make Your Parents Hurl.
