Though Lori Aurelia Williams adored reading as a child, she never thought she'd be a writer when she grew up. While studying English at the University of Texas at Austin, she departed from the traditional lecture and composition courses and took a creative writing class on whim.

Born in Houston, Lori Aurelia Williams now lives in Austin.
