About Minicon

Guests of Honor

Author and Illustrator: Ursula Vernon

Ursula Vernon began her SF/F career as a web comic writer, winning a Hugo Award for Best Graphic Novel in 2012. "Digger" is a wonderful story about a female wombat engineer who maintains her solid practicality in the face of magic, gods and demons. Since then, Ursula has written and illustrated a huge assortment of stories for children, from the early-reader series "Dragonbreath" to young adult novel "Castle Hangnail." She has also become an incredibly prolific writer for "older audiences," with about a dozen books written under the pen name T. Kingfisher. As Ursula Vernon or T. Kingfisher, she has won two more Hugos and a Nebula. Presumably both of them will be at the convention, since they seem to be a single person, with enough energy, sincerity, and silliness for two.
