Theodora Goss was born in Hungary and spent her childhood in various European countries before her family moved to the United States.

Her publications include the collections In the Forest of Forgetting and Songs for OpheliaThe Thorn and the Blossom, a novella in a two-sided accordion formatdebut novel The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter, and its sequel, European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman. She has been a finalist for the Nebula, Crawford, Locus, Seiun, and Mythopoeic Awards, and on the Tiptree Award Honor List. She has won the World Fantasy and Locus awards.
