The author, Elyssa Kirkham.

This Blog/Blogger

Meet Elyssa JK, the absent mind behind this blog.

I’ve wanted to be an Author (with a capital “A”) since I learned to read and first lost myself to stories — a most delicious and addicting experience.

I’m currently working on a young adult fantasy novel, featuring a strong heroine who must save her people and find a way to redeem herself. Also, deserts and dragons and other awesome stuff.

I also make books by hand, a hobby I’ve enjoyed for three years now. I write about both endeavors — bookbinding and writing — in this blog (which is also a spaceship). And sometimes I also write about life and geekery and other stuff that interests me. Don’t be afraid — go ahead and follow along with me.

As for Elyssa Kirkham, the Professional Writer:

I graduated in 2010 with a degree in Creative Writing and an editorial/journalistic background. I have three years of professional writing experience, and have been developing my online marketing chops for the past year and a half. I’m a word-slinging cowgirl looking to conquer the World Wide Web on behalf of truth, justice and profit. So, you know, yeehaw! 

If you’re still reading, I’ll take it as a sign that you want to know even more about me.

I enjoy destroying video game zombies, making delicious salads and generally mucking about. I’m a vegetarian that doesn’t much care for animals. I come from a big family, and I love it. I’m also married to a super-talented and funny guy, Chris Kirkham, who does web stuff and stand up comedy. I help him write jokes — and often provide the material for them.

I love the world, though I haven’t seen much of it. I recently moved to West Los Angeles, CA, and looking forward to adventuring about there.
