Rese has been imagining the fantastic since she was a child. She grew up wandering through myriad book worlds, and her taste for crazy tales eventually led to a BA in English from UC Berkeley and a PhD in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway, University of London. When she’s not writing about the impossible, she’s pursuing various interests, such as traveling, photographing, piano playing, and theater going. She especially enjoys sleeping and dreaming; she tweets her dreams as poems on Twitter @TL_Rese.
