Charis M. Ellison is a lifelong reader with a passionate love for stories. She’s a writer, a body-positive fat girl, and the huffiest, puffiest Hufflepuff. A military brat, Charis was homeschooled while moving across the US, 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).
