Chris S. Hayes, MD, is lifelong reader of classic science fiction and a practicing family medicine physician from Lafayette, LA. Since she loved reading science fiction so much, late in life she decided to try her hand at writing it. In November of 2014, just before her 51st birthday, her first novel, Sikkiyn, was published by Solstice Publishing. She’s been traveling from convention to convention to meet readers since then, and she’s excited to be here to talk to you about science fiction and all things geeky. At conventions – when she’s not in a panel – you can find her at her author’s table, busy writing the sequel to Sikkiyn. Come on by for a visit.
