Biographical and Professional Information

Award-winning author, EM Kaplan, was an 80s kid, spoon fed on six channels of a VHF dial TV. She grew up reading Agatha Christie and Edgar Rice Burroughs in rural Arizona where there were no sidewalks but plenty of tumbleweeds. She has an undergrad degree from Brandeis University and a Master's in Creative Writing from the University of Arizona. A former wannabe spy, trombonist, toilet-cleaner, beginner ninja, and subversive marketeer, she currently lives in the frozen north with her husband, author JD Kaplan, kids, and dog.
