Peri Dwyer Worrell grew up on a Puerto Rican street in Manhattan, gaining a keen appreciation of the value of diversity, tolerance, and taking no crap from anyone. She dabbled in poetry and copy editing in her teens and early twenties, but her love of science and her ability to make people feel better with her hands led her, instead, into the profession of chiropractic. She practiced for 30 years in North Florida. When she became disabled by inflammatory arthritis, she took that as a sign that she should return to her first love: the written word. Peri’s poetry has appeared in Tiny SeedAggregateWesterly, and (coincidentally) Crack the Spine. Her short stories have appeared in Mystery Weekly and Aggregate. She has self-published a trilogy of science-fiction novels, available at or on Amazon and other e-book retailers. She also edits fiction and non-fiction books and scientific articles, freelance.

Peri is a contributing author to the House of Zolo’s Journal of Speculative Literature – Volume 2  with the short story “Itch.”
