Kate Staker has lived in Vermont, Oregon, Utah, and South Korea, and has consequently developed a taste for sugar on snow, phosphates, and ddeok. (Not trifle. Sorry, Utah.) She is a graduate of Brigham Young University’s editing and publishing program and has worked with WordFire Press, Cedar Fort Publishing, Future House Publishing, and Whipsaw Press. When not editing, Kate works on her own novels; her current work in progress is a Victorian-era portal story featuring romance, murder, intrigue, and magic. Kate lives with her husband in a hobbit hole in Utah.
