NEVE MASLAKOVIC is the author of Regarding Ducks and Universes (Amazon Encore). Before that she was busy writing technical papers and finishing her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University’s STAR Lab (Space, Telecommunications and Radioscience Laboratory). After much moving back and forth between Belgrade—where she spent her early years speaking Serbian in then communist Yugoslavia—and London, New York, and the San Francisco Bay Area, she has settled near Minneapolis/St. Paul. She enjoys the Minnesota weather (even, on occasion, in January). She is a member of the Loft Literary Center and is currently hard at work on her second, as yet untitled, novel.
