Let's make one thing clear: Fio has been published since she was five, when her art appeared in the Akron Beacon Journal. Later, she wrote for school publications--her elementary school newspaper, her high school literary booklet, Latin booklets. She put in a stint as editor of the state Latin publication, had some poetry published, and wrote a doctoral dissertation. She self-pubbed more little booklets, wrote for the American-Statesman, for her own neighborhood newspaper, and for local magazines. She had more poetry published, plus a short story.
But she's never had a full-length novel published till now.
