A.M. Strickland was a bibliophile who wanted to be an author before she knew what either of those words meant. She shares a home base in Alaska with her spouse, her pugs, and her piles and piles of books. She loves traveling, dancing, tattoos, and every shade of teal in existence, but especially the darker ones. Her books include In the Ravenous Dark, Beyond the Black Door, and Shadow Run. She uses both she/her and they/them pronouns.
