Molly Ringle was one of the quiet, weird kids in school, and is now one of the quiet, weird writers of the world. For as long as she can remember, from elementary school libraries to university anthropology courses to the deliciously imaginative niches of online fandom, she’s been passionately drawn to queer literature and other works that challenge and reshape cultures. With her intense devotion to humor, she was proud to win the grand prize in the 2010 Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest with one (intentionally) terrible sentence. She’s into folklore, fantasy, mythology, mild rainy climates, gardens, chocolate, tea, and perfume (or really anything that smells good). Though she made up occasional imaginary realms in her Oregon backyard while growing up, Eidolonia is her first full-fledged fictional country. Molly currently lives in Seattle with her husband, kids, corgi, and a lot of moss.
