(?   -    ) US biotech scientist and author whose Signal Airship sequence beginning with The Guns Above (2017) follows the career of a female Airship captain in a Steampunk Alternate World. The complications of her career are reminiscent of those of C S Forester's Horatio Hornblower, and though the series may remain planet-bound Captain Josette Dupre is very much a Hornblower in Space figure.
