K.D. Van Brunt
I was raised in Southern CA and Seattle and came east to Boston to go to school, before drifting down to Wash, DC for work. I now live in Maryland, work in DC, and write in whatever Starbucks I can find nearby. What time I have when not writing, working or reading, I like to cook and hang out with my standard poodle, Buffy. I like fast cars, hockey, long drives and hiking. Short term goal: finish my trilogy. Long term goal: support myself writing.

The struggle is real...
