Bethany Herron has had short works of nonfiction and fiction published in The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, PEEQ, and the anthology Bad-Ass Faeries: It’s Elemental. In her professional life, she's been a grant writer for nine years, crafting hundreds of proposals on tight deadlines. Before that, she put her English degree to use working at a small publishing house in Oakland. She's also put over 100,000 miles on her pickup truck Tach, crossing the country on backroads, and racked up even more mileage on the tracks as a freight train conductor.
