Tessa Stockton is a speculative fiction novelist, freelance writer, and transcript editor. She has contributed to ministry publications, as a ghostwriter for political content, and headed a column on forgiveness. Raised in Washington State, she traveled the world as a dancer and missionary, and now lives in East Tennessee where she writes full-time. A quintessential introvert and bookworm with a penchant for the obscure, Tessa enjoys hiking quiet forest paths, the sound of chugging guitar, and validating her position as a chips and salsa junkie.

It took me half the book to acclimate to the author’s style of writing (including all the parenthetical phrases), but then the second half was amazing. I felt as if I also climbed Everest. This all-ages story brought such sensory realism and climatic ...more
