E.K. Johnston had several jobs and one vocation before she became a published writer. If she's learned anything, it's that things turn out weird sometimes, and there's not a lot you can do about it. She is the author of the acclaimed novels A Thousand Nights and Exit, Pursued by a Bear as well as the forthcoming Spindle.
