Adria Karlsson lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with her family. Currently she is writing and parenting, but she has a history of teaching people, training cats and dogs, and tutoring kids with dyslexia. When their daughter let them know that they’d gotten her gender wrong at birth, Adria and her spouse were deeply grateful for the outflowing of love and support from the local LGBTQIA+ community and hope to be able to pay it forward. When she isn’t writing, Adria can often be found reading with a cat on her lap, attempting to replicate pastries from a certain British baking show, or zipping around town with a pile of children in the family cargo bike.
