Writer Bio

Vancouverite doctoral student studying bioethics (of human gene editing) at McGill University. @derek___so on Twitter.

Writing Style

I mostly write high-concept, near future SF with a lot of metafictional elements. My novel-in-progress is a sort of autobiography about the designer baby industry, from the perspective of one of the babies. All the chapter titles are puns.

Writing Goal

45,000 words converted from notes to prose on my thesis - which isn't exactly my novel but has to get done this year and is on the same topic anyway

Fundraising Goal
