Anthea Jane Carson

Anthea Carson was born in Texas, but captured by aliens and raised in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, home to more taverns per square inch than any city in the United States. Instead of majoring in something useful, she got a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. With fifty cents and a cup of coffee, she was then able to become become a tournament chess player, which meant an income of negative $3,000 per year. She has won such National awards as"Female Game 60 champion of 2003," and is frequently listed in the top 100 chess playing women in the U.S. Chess Federation's list of top chess players. She has worked as a chess coach in the schools since 1999. She is the co-author of "How to Play Chess Like an Animal," a children's chess book. Anthea has been playing chess and writing fiction since childhood. She has three published novels, one short story, and many more on the way, including more chess books. Her novel The Dark Lake, about a madwoman from Oshkosh, Wisconsin is in no way autobiographical.
