Charis M. Ellison is a writer, a body-positive fat girl, a demisexual who loves romance novels, and a lifelong reader with a passionate love for stories. A military brat with a big, bookish family, Charis was homeschooled while living in six different states and three different countries before landing in Fort Worth, Texas. Now she works in a small local library, co-hosts the As My Wimsey Takes Me podcast, and never goes to bed on time. Her poetry has appeared in Cicada and in Strange Horizons, and she’s been honored to present essays at Sirens (2018) and Texmoot (2019).
