Kaelan was born and raised in upstate NY, in the Adirondack mountains.
Xie started writing when xie turned 11 and hasn't ever stopped as evidenced by the massive amount of notebooks and digital files of xyr writing xie has hanging around. (We just moved, so trust me, it was a shock to see how much of it there really was.)
Xie identifies as queer, because xie fits many of the letters of the QUILTBAG/LGBTQQIP2SAA acronyms.
Kaelan holds a B.A in bioanthropology/forensic chemistry and an MST in education/world history. Xie loved University, so holds minors in English, Literary Fiction, Creative Writing, Linguistics, Graphic Design, Folklore, Medieval History, and Modern Dance.
Xyr hobbies include reading, spinning wool with a spinning wheel, cooking, knitting, sewing and making jewelry.
Xie currently lives in Southern Ontario, Canada with xyr partner of 20 years, their two kids, three cats who put meaning to the phrase 'foot fetishist', and a grumpy rescue chinchilla.
The best place to connect with Kaelan is on Twitter, where xie spends way too much time.
