Tucson Festival of Books

Hiron Ennes (they/them)


Hiron Ennes is a writer, musician and student of medicine based in the Pacific Northwest. Their areas of interest include infectious disease, pathology, and anticapitalist healthcare reform. When they're not hunched over a microscope or word document they can be found playing in the snow or playing the harp (though usually not at the same time). They're queer in every sense of the word, and they really want to pet your dog. "Leech" is their first novel.

The Monster Panel!
Every culture has its own monsters. The authors on this panel will tell us about them, and explain what makes for a good one. Hopefully their monsters will stay on the written page!
