Writer, Illustrator, musician, humanesque creature who doesn’t get enough sunlight and lives solely on tea, E. Kathryn started writing The Shadows when she was thirteen years old. Brought up in northern Virginia with her siblings and tons of animals, she drew inspiration to write from the forest and the creek in her backyard. When she’s not writing incessantly, E. Kathryn enjoys drawing, playing the violin, and collecting and consuming way more tea than she needs.
Being a part of a large family inspired a sense of community in me from a young age. And Found Family is a strong building block in the person I’ve grown to be. Just like the Shadows feel most whole when they are together, I believe we humans need to belong, to give, and to share, and our primary drive as human beings is to create a safe space for people to thrive. If the ASH had a manifesto, that would be it.
