Grace is a speculative fiction writer and doctor. Her writing explores brains, minds, technology, alien worlds, relationships, power, identity, and hidden parts of the self.
Her soft-cyberpunk-with-feelings debut novel, Every Version of You, is about mind-uploading and identity and transformation. It’s set in near-future Australia and an expansive virtual reality world called Gaia. It will be published by Affirm Press in September 2022.
Her short fiction can be found in Clarkesworld, Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women, Going Down Swinging, Aurealis, Andromeda Spaceways Magazine, and other places. She has been shortlisted for the Aurealis Awards, Norma K Hemming Award, and Viva la Novella.
The other version of Grace works in psychiatry. She is fascinated by psychology, neuroscience, consciousness, empathy, ethics, and the mind-body relationship. Writers who have influenced her include Ursula K Le Guin, Oliver Sacks, Kazuo Ishiguro, Ted Chiang, and Ken Liu.
