Ursula Vernon is the author and illustrator of far more projects than is probably healthy. She has written over twenty books for children, an epic webcomic called “Digger” and various short stories and other odds and ends, plus a dozen novels for adults under the name T. Kingfisher.
The daughter of an artist, she spent her youth attempting to rebel, but eventually succumbed to the siren song of paint (although not before getting a degree in anthropology.) Her work has won multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards, as well as multiple Mythopoeic Awards, and the Coyotl,Locus, and WSFA Small Press Award.
Having moved across the country several times, she eventually settled in Pittsboro, North Carolina, where she
works full-time as an artist and creator of oddities. She lives with her husband, his chickens, a redtick coonhound and a small collection of cats. In addition to writing and making art, Ms. Vernon gardens, feeds the birds, and has an unhealthy
obsession with mulch.
