At a very young age, A.K. decided she wanted nothing more than to become a writer and follow in the footsteps of her literary heroes. More importantly, her journey to live her dream has been the most knowledgeable teacher and mentor she could have imagined. A.K. continues to believe in the power of story to inspire and connect people in what can seem like an increasingly disconnected world. In 2015, she received an honorable mention in Glimmer Train‘s April Very Short Fiction Award. Her work has been published online at Plum Tree Tavern and in NILVX: A Book of Magic and Thin Air Magazine. Presently, she serves as an assistant creative nonfiction editor at Newfound: An Inquiry of Place.
