S.K. has been a lover of the written word since childhood. In elementary school, she had the chance to write and illustrate a children's book and then go on a field trip to a writer's conference. She was hooked...and knew that, more than anything in the world, she wanted to write.
She became a devourer of books. This passion eventually led her to pursue a Ph.D. in English Literature, with focus on the medieval period. Her interest in the intertwining of history, mythology, memory, and language inspires much of her work, including the science fiction Silesia Trilogy and her new dystopian Origin Series.
When she's not writing novels, you can find her freelancing about writing and anything else she finds fascinating, reading, teaching, enjoying a cup of coffee, and playing backyard football or hiking with her kids.
She currently lives with her husband and six beautiful children in Dallas, Texas.
