Maya Deane Books & Biography


Maya Deane (she/her) is a novelist, a visual artist, and an avid student of all the arts of civilization attributed to Inana by the first known writer, Enheduana. She would love to talk to you about the history of forks, the history of beer (and how the only woman who became king of Sumer was a bartender and brewer), cannabis-hotboxing Amazons in the archaeological record, the top three most famous eighteenth-century French trans women, how to cook ancient Canaanite food (hint: import bananas from India), and what it’s like making friends with a scholarly feline. (Shout-out to Apollo!) She is a graduate of the Rutgers-Camden MFA program in creative writing.
