Award winning editor and author Elsa R. Sjunneson is a Deafblind hurricane in a vintage dress. She was 5 years old when the ADA was passed into law, and while she's grateful for the advances that the law has afforded her, she knows the work has only just begun. Her authorial work has appeared in CNN Opinion (Link: https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/19/opinions/measles-outbreak-anti-vaccine-movement-disability-sjunneson-henry/index.html) The Disability Visibility Project & Anthology (Link: https://disabilityvisibilityproject.com/2020/04/27/my-life-has-quality/), The Nebula nominated Fate Accessibility Toolkit (Link: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/283738/Fate-Accessibility-Toolkit-o-Prototype-Edition) and many other projects and venues. She is the non-fiction editor of Uncanny Magazine and was the managing editor of Fireside Quarterly for several years. One of her earliest memories is of being with her parents at an ActUp protest - she is a seasoned activist who has worked for LGBTQ+ rights, AIDS education, and disability rights for her whole life. With an MA in Women's History from Sarah Lawrence, she also writes disability theory and history, and her first book "Alone in the Light" is being released in 2021 from Simon & Schuster. She lives in Seattle, WA with her guide dog. If you're looking for her online, just look for the snarkbat (Link: www.snarkbat.com) signal!
