About the Author

 

     Kate Pentecost was born and raised on the Texas/Louisiana border, where ghosts and rural legends lurk in the pines and nothing is completely as it seems.

     She holds an MFA in Writing for Children &Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts.  She was recently nominated for a Rhysling award for her poem "Small Town Witches."

     Her debut novel, Elysium Girls, is forthcoming from Disney Hyperion in 2020 in print and audio formats.

     She is obsessed with the Romantic Poets and can be identified by the enormous tattoo of Percy Bysshe Shelley on her arm. She lives in Houston (H-Town, Space City, etc.)
