Kate Stallworth has spent her life bouncing back and forth between Washington and Texas. In 2020, she earned a dual BA/BS from The Evergreen State College, with concentrations in creative fiction, genre studies, invertebrate zoology, and scientific illustration. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Fiction at Texas State University. A great lover of the graphic novel, Kate grew up on Bone (1991), Saga (2012), and of course, Calvin and Hobbes. She’s a huge fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror; her hobbies include video games, fiction podcasts, insect collecting, and cooking for her partner and family. Kate has been published in the Emerge anthology four times, and her work centers on queer and neurodivergent experiences.
