My name is Scout Tran-Caffee (formerly Dax). I was born in the early \'80s, which puts me now in my early 30s. I grew up in Silicon Valley, spent a little time in Chicago for school, and currently live in San Francisco. I\'m a mixed-race 2nd-generation genderqueer, a trans woman and a professional independent artist, which is, I suppose, what this novel is about.
In highschool I once submitted a draft to a local comic publishing company, but they politely declined. I started making performable sequential art in 2004, mostly involving mechanisms with a high rate of fail and illustrations that require way too much patience on the part of an audience; I perform these and other artworks under the title Villainette. Failing Sky is my first graphic novel.
