Eden Robins writes short stories, novels, essays, and decision-making software about health insurance. Her writing has appeared in USAToday, Apex, LA Review of Books, and Shimmer, and she co-produces a monthly live lit series in Chicago called Tuesday Funk. Eden has an uncanny habit of abandoning creative projects just as they're starting to gain traction, including Brain Harvest magazine, and the podcast Should I Worry About This? She lives in Chicago and tweets grumpily @edenrobins.
