About Elinor Caiman Sands

Science fiction and fantasy writer Elinor Caiman Sands has had short fiction published in the Ditmar Award winning anthology, Defying Doomsday, from Australia’s Twelfth Planet Press; the Aurora Award nominated Strange Bedfellows Anthology of Political Science Fiction (published by Bundoran Press) as well in Zooscape, Cosmos Online and elsewhere.

She’s currently working on her first novel which is based on “Europa Spring,” her first published story.

When not writing she paints a little and creates 3D digital art for virtual worlds like Second Life and SansarVR.


In the past Elinor has worked in both politics and publishing. She was supposedly the first wheelchair user elected to the NUS NEC in the UK and went on to work as Deputy Editor at the Labour Party’s Progress political education organisation set up by Derek Draper. There she interviewed and occasionally ghostwrote for Cabinet ministers including Tony Blair.

She has a first class honours degree in history and politics from the University of Nottingham.

Elinor also happens to be a little person–a dwarf–standing at only 3′ 3″ tall.
