Stephanie Gildart has been writing fantasy and science fiction for as long as she can remember. Growing up near Seattle, she checked out so many books that she memorized her library card number. She received her MA/MFA in Children’s Literature and Writing for Children from the Simmons University. When she isn’t writing or teaching middle schoolers, she loves to crochet amigurumi dolls, play tabletop games, and explore other creative things. She lives in the Bay Area with her dogs Fox and Lilly, who remind her enjoy a nice walk outside every day (as long as it isn’t raining).
