M. L. Krishnan originally hails from the coastal shores of Tamil Nadu. She writes about queer love and desire in the Subcontinent; about blurred realities; about the messy emotional and speculative landscapes of human beings, demigods, and the itinerant ghosts of South India. She is currently the Marketing Director of khōréō, a quarterly magazine of speculative fiction and migration. She lives in the Midwest, and wages a losing battle with tenacious squirrels in her downtime.
