Author. Poet. Artist.

T.C. Kemper is a writer from Kentucky. When she's not sipping peppermint tea sweetened with local honey or hiking woodland trails with her husband and her dog, she's likely losing herself in a beautifully crafted story.

Her writing has been published in the Journal of Conflict Management (research), The Black Sheep (nationally and regionally featured satire), and various Kentucky news sources.

Currently, her favorite books include Caraval, The Ten Thousand Doors of January, Where the Crawdads Sing, An Ember in the Ashes, The Young Elites, A Snicker of Magic, The Girl Who Drank the Moon, Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow, Aru Shah and the End of Time, Mexican Gothic, Felix Ever After, and The Silver Arrow.

She plans to traditionally publish, and is represented by the fabulous Amy Giuffrida of the Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency in New York.

WIPs include MG & YA fantasy, speculative, and historical fiction.
