Pep­per Thorn

Pep­per Thorn lives in the Deep South with her hus­band and three cats. In col­lege she dis­cov­ered that she had the exact oppo­site per­son­al­ity of the aver­age school teacher; so she became one. Now she teaches bright ele­men­tary stu­dents, runs book clubs for advanced read­ers, and writes sto­ries she wants to read. In her spare time she knits, watches sci­ence fic­tion and fan­tasy shows and movies, plays games, and hangs out with a wide vari­ety of geeky friends.
