Therese Arkenberg's home on the web

About Therese

Therese Arkenberg is doing her best to earn that checkered history so popular in writer’s biographies. She’s worked at a library and as a cashier at a craft store, been a philosophy tutor and volunteer income tax preparer, and interned at two international nonprofits. She started working as a developmental and copy-editor while living in Washington, D.C. in 2013. Since then, she’s moved back home to Wisconsin, where she serves as co-president on the board of Plowshare Fair Trade and Education for Peace, runs her small editing business, reads almost too much, and writes.

Her first short story was accepted for publication in Byzarium on January 2, 2008. Her second story sold a few hours later, to MindFlights. Since then, her work has appeared in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Daily Science Fiction, Crossed Genres, Analog, Ares, and the anthologies Thoughtcrime Experiments and Sword and Sorceress XXIV. She writes science fiction, fantasy, and the occasional love story. Some of her darker work has been described, to her surprise and secret pleasure, as horror. Her science fiction novella Aqua Vitae was released by WolfSinger Publications in December 2011.
