Gail Carriger began writing in order to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in higher learning. She is fond of teeny tiny hats and tropical fruit. The Parasol Protectorate books are urbane fantasies mixed with comedies of manners and steampunk. They include: Soulless, Changeless, Blameless, Heartless, and Timeless. Soulless won the ALA's Alex Award and was nominated for a Compton Crook, Campbell, and a Locus Award. Changeless and Blameless were New York Times Bestsellers. Her other hats (neither pith helmet nor fedora) have included tromping the Peruvian highlands excavating ancient pottery and writing cryptic reviews of YA novels for the Horn Book Guide.
