A writer of fantasy and paranormal stories, Beth Alvarez was born and raised in southern Illinois. As a child, J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit was the first book she read on her own. The experience was life-altering but had the unfortunate side effect of setting her literary standards too high.
A major of visual arts, Alvarez has worked as a freelance web designer, graphic designer, and an illustrator. When not writing, she enjoys drawing, driving, video games, and sewing for her unusual collection of Asian ball-jointed dolls.
She now resides in the suburbs of Memphis, Tennessee with her husband and daughter, their Siberian husky, and a very mean cat.
