A.J. Baczek has been in love with words for as long as she can remember. In addition to writing and reading fiction, she enjoys hiking, five-hour conversations with friends, and Italian food. She dances to her eclectic music collection when no one’s watching, and can play a gloriously mediocre game of tennis. She positively adores the rain, and thrives on adventure. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her two crazy cats.
