Catherynne M. Valente was born on Cinco de Mayo, 1979 in Seattle, WA, but grew up in in the wheatgrass paradise of Northern California. She graduated from high school at age 15, going on to UC San Diego and Edinburgh University, receiving her B.A. in Classics with an emphasis in Ancient Greek Linguistics. She then drifted away from her M.A. program and into a long residence in the concrete and camphor wilds of Japan.

She currently lives in Maine with her partner, two dogs, and three cats, having drifted back to America and the mythic frontier of the Midwest.

Happy Book Birthday to The Glass Town Game!

My middle grade fantasy featuring the Brontë children, a talking newspaper stand, twelve wooden soldiers, two sentient suitcases, and Napoleon riding a flaming chicken, is out and in the world today!
