K. Worthen is a professor, copy editor, proofreader, writer, hiker, cyclist, yogi, vegetarian, reader,  Instagrammer, ex-Facebook-er, bus-rider, and Android owner who likes to write lists.

In between listing things, she earned a Ph.D. from the University of Florida and teaches writing courses at said university as a post-doc associate.

In her downtime, she writes screenplays, short stories, and articles about everything she is too awkward and shy to say or experience in real life.

When she is not writing some earth-shattering work of fiction or impressing her legion of followers (not really) with her masterful verbal dexterity, she is probably grading or watching anime.
