The Very Official Long Version:

Eli Lang is a writer and drummer.  She has played in rock bands, worked on horse farms, and had jobs in libraries, where she spent most of her time reading every book she could get her hands on.  She can fold a nearly perfect paper crane and knows how to tune a snare drum.  She still buys stuffed animals because she feels bad if they’re left alone in the store, believes cinnamon buns should always be eaten warm, can tell you more than you ever wanted to know about the tardigrade, and has a book collection that’s reaching frightening proportions.  She lives in Arizona with far too many pets.
