Ransom Noble has always loved stories. She’s been an avid reader and writer as long as she can remember. Believing determination can help one attain any goal, she set her sights high and achieved many goals. Her love of the sciences led her to a career in mechanical engineering and often pushes her imagination into the speculative fiction realm.
Ransom and her husband enjoy watching movies and playing games with their friends. She likes to go see local bands play and occasionally attends sports events at her alma mater. Her live-and-let-live policy extends to stinging insects and spiders, which earned her the nickname the Wasp Whisperer.
Ransom currently resides in Des Moines, Iowa, though she’s lived several other places. She’s sure she isn’t fond of snow since she was born in Modesto, California, and didn’t learn what it was until she was eight. She graduated from engineering at the University of Iowa in Iowa City.
Her work includes “Qui’s Contract,” a short story that appeared in Ruins Metropolis in June 2008, The Art of Science in 2009, and “The Rescuers,” a short story that appeared in The Storm is Coming in 2012.
