Risa Peris

The writer, when not writing, dreams of having a chicken sanctuary, a sloth as a walking partner, and a roomful of tiny toys. She loves polka dots, making tapas, and mysteries – from Sherlock Holmes to the quirkiness of quantum stuff. She has published three books and is feverishly at work on a few screenplays, when not writing short stories. She was born in a land that is occasionally full of fire, floods, rumbling earth, famous people, and with a tendency to riot – California. The writer is currently tucked away in a cool hidey hole in a land full of burning sunshine – Arizona.

The author, when not writing, hunts for shadows in the hard light, has conversations with cats, catalogs his library of books, and collects marbles (he may be missing a few). He has a deep, deep distrust of vinegar and capital letters, loves brandy and peanuts, and avoids all foreign languages. He maintains he has little talent for music but wrote the lyrics to several successful songs. He spends his days happily caring for his children and his nights penning prose for his upcoming book. He lives in Ireland.
