Courtney Schafer is Lead Data Scientist at Narrative Muse. Before moving to Aotearoa, she designed algorithms to interpret imagery from satellites and spacecraft, while writing a trilogy of epic fantasy novels on the side. Courtney has always been passionate about helping others discover under-read books and forgotten authors. When not working or writing, she figure skates, climbs mountains, and chases after her insanely active spoodle. Courtney lives with her husband and son in the rural township of Lake Hawea.
