Evangeline Giaconia, she/her/hers. I’m a writer, primarily of young adult fantasy novels. I post about them quite a bit, especially as I try to give one of them–The Book of the Dead–a better life on physical bookshelves. This blog contains many things writing-related, including my original work, book reviews, handy writing resources, and my thoughts about the writing process.

Meanwhile, I study anthropology, with a concentration in religious studies and a minor in biology (whew!).

Literary passions : diversity in YA, non-romance-centric plots, creative interpretations of mythology, and endings that don’t suck the joy out of your life for weeks but instead leave you smiling for days.

Non-literary passions: studying martial arts, doing regular art (pen and ink, acrylic, watercolor, making rings), running, reading, and stressing (competitively). I love to travel, and I will be returning to Ecuador this summer for the third year in a row to continue my long-term research/work there.

Languages: Spanish (conversational), Kichwa/Quechua (working on it), American Sign Language (getting better+my one true love).

Fun Facts: I find a ton of four-leaf clovers, I can lick my elbow, I was previously an aspiring zookeeper/ornithologist, and I’m obsessed with all mythologies.

This blog updates every weekend. Thanks for dropping by!
