Chrysoula Tzavelas went to twelve schools in twelve years while growing up as an Air Force brat, and she never met a library she didn't like. She now lives near Seattle with her family. In between working on her own stories, she freelances for video game projects and homeschools her eldest child. When she's avoiding work, she plays mobile RPGs, creates digital art, and watches anime. Her favorite authors include Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, Terry Pratchett, Guy Gavriel Kay and Iain Banks.
