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."

Will this serve me in a practical way in the future? Probably not. Will it make me interesting at parties? Definitely. (less)

Elysium Girls by Kate Pentecost
It does not! I'm into unquestioned reciprocity. Maybe one day I'll write a love triangle, but I'd have to have a good reason.
