I’m a biologist, GIS nerd, and occasional wildland firefighter living in North Carolina. The many hobbies I enjoy but am bad at include photography, rock climbing, tabletop RPGs, knitting, and orienteering. I write literary short stories and SFF novels, and hope to someday figure out why it doesn’t work the other way around. You can find me yelling about politics, gaming, and writing on Twitter (@bethanyharvey) or about under-appreciated wildlife at OverlookedNature.com.
