Ivanna S. Mendels
Ivanna S. Mendels writes fantasy, science fiction, and steampunk, even children’s picture books. Her Opera Dinosaur book was published in France and another of her Asian steampunk short stories will soon be published in Indonesia. Having lived and backpacked around the world, her adventures often inspired her writings. She is also secretly obsessed with Alfred Russel Wallace and hopes to follow his trail one of these days. Her steampunk stories are partly influenced by Wallace’s descriptions of South East Asia in his books. Ivanna is currently working on another joint project with some of her Indonesian Nanowrimo friends. You can follow her on Twitter at @wulfettenoire
