E. C. Stilson
is the author of several novels including The Golden Sky, Bible Girl & the Bad Boy and Crazy Life of a Writing Mom. She spends most of her time taking care of four rambunctious kids who are better than green eggs and ham. They're pretty darnn fun, but despite that, after she had kids, her boobs shrunk, she lost hair, but gained a greater sense of humor! When she's not scavenging through the vents, where her son—The Zombie Elf—likes hiding things, she's sewing, playing her violin, editing or writing.
