About Corry

Corry with a pen

Corry L. Lee is a science fiction and fantasy author, Ph.D. physicist, award-winning science teacher, data geek, and mom. 

Corry’s historical fantasy novel, Weave the Lightning, releases in April 2020 from Solaris Books. Her science fiction short story “Shutdown” won the Writers of the Future award. 

In Ph.D. research at Harvard, she shed light on the universe fractions of a second after the Big Bang and won numerous teaching awards.  Later, at Amazon, she connected science to technology, improving customer experience through online experimentation.

Meet Corry at one of her upcoming appearances, where she’ll happily enthuse about nordic skiing, French pop music, or fancy coffee.  (Or whatever she’s currently loving.)

Tense, timely, and crackling with urgent energy. I guarantee that by the end of the book, you will be looking for your own resistance to join… or to start.
