I’m Rae Botsford End, a writer, editor, and artist. I particularly enjoy writing, reading, and editing speculative fiction, including science fiction, fantasy, and a special blend of both. I’ve written technical white papers through Tech Briefs Media Group, articles for SpaceFlight Insider, including an article on EFT-1 and an interview with Rocket Lab’s Peter Beck, and a short story, Ba’byl. For more, see my works page!

As for visual arts, I primarily draw, paint, and help lead the arts ministry at Indy Vineyard Church. For info on the Indy Vineyard Arts Community, check out IVAC’s page on IVC’s website.

I live in Indianapolis with my beloved husband, Ed, near a lot of good friends. I keep plants alive indoors and outdoors, and I’m learning piano and Korean. I enjoy reading C.S. Lewis, Lewis Carroll, J.R.R. Tolkien, Isaac Asimov, and Jules Verne. I enjoy watching Star Trek in all its iterations.
