About the Author

Raised in New Orleans, Kelly Jennings now lives in the Boston Mountains, where she writes science fiction when she is not catering to cats. Her short fiction has appeared in many venues, including The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, The Other Half of The Sky and Retellings of the Inland Seas. Her short story History of the Invasion Told in Five Dogs appeared in The Year's Best Science Fiction: 35th Annual Collection (2018). She has published two novels, Broken Slate (2011) and Fault Lines (2018); and she co-edited the anthology Menial: Skilled Labor in SF (2012).


In this fun, intrigue-laden space opera, // Jennings gives an intriguing glimpse of a much larger setting. // Fans of found family will love the portrayal of Velocity and her crew of scrappy underdogs. -- Publishers Weekly

Kelly [Jennings] has been compared with C. J. Cherryh, and I think deservedly. Fault Lines isn't burdened with the awful angst of Cherryh's [] Cyteen, but it has the same intensity and conviction. -- Gwyneth Jones, author of the Aleutian trilogy, winner of the World Fantasy, Clarke, Dick, and Tiptree awards

More political intrigue and gamesmanship than a standard space-battle story... // Solid world building, likable characters...nifty plot twists... -- Craig Clark, Booklist

A sharp, character-rich space opera packed with angry, capable women and attractive, vulnerable men. Jennings builds a large, politically complex world // but expresses this through an intimate slice... -- Tansy Rayner Roberts, author of the Creature Court trilogy, winner of multiple Ditmar and WSFA Small Press awards
