Well you got this far. So here is a story of a lass from Cleveland, Ohio who learned German from a crazy great-grandma; went to become a rocket scientist in the corn fields of West Lafayette, Indiana; met a girl and dragged her to Detroit, Michigan; made her her wife, hung out in pubs in Galway; and eventually got around to writing novels and designing cars.

I’m N H Kendall, or Niamh, I’m a trans woman working with the Ford Motor Company as an engineer in a field called Systems Engineering Optimization.  The long and short of it is that I primarily work on testing and “attacking” old requirements and design paradigms so that the company can build better cars for less money.

In my spare time I also manage to squeeze in some football kit design and help run an inclusive co-ed rec team called Harper’s AFC. If you’re interested in playing or just following, you can check us out here or on twitter under the handle AT The_HarpersAFC.

My wife, Brigid, and I both write speculative fiction. If you want to know more about my work – you are already in the right place! If you want to know more about her work – you should head over to backwrites where she operates an independent publishing firm.
