E. K. Thiede

Hello and welcome! I’m Emily, a 2017 PitchWars mentee and  current Author Mentor Match Mentee, writing Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy.

I’m also a former teacher, a volunteer for a local writing nonprofit organization, and once a week I brainstorm stories about dragons afraid of fire with a class of second-graders.

I was born up north but I’ve been living in the south for half my life, which means I talk very fast but I also know how to use “bless your heart” effectively.
