Hi, I'm Kristina Elyse Butke: writer, teacher, and editor.

Kristina Elyse Butke's Bio:

Kristina Elyse Butke reads, writes, and teaches, while occasionally indulging in cosplay and all things otaku. She has a BA in English Literature from Capital University and an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. She writes fantasy, horror, and poetry, and her work has been published by ExFic, First Class Literary, and Synaeresis Magazine, among others. Kristina has been a community college lecturer; she’s presented panels on writing fanfiction and speculative fiction at Ohayocon, Matsuricon, and Colossalcon; she’s written plays and musicals for Ohio State; and one of her latest projects included subtitle edits for Pied Piper Inc.’s release of the anime Skip Beat! Kristina currently lives in Kumamoto prefecture in Japan, where she works as an assistant language teacher of English. When she isn’t working on all the things, she travels to shrines, hunts for Kumamon, and spends more money than she should at the JUMP shop.
