About Me


Hi. I'm S.E. Sinkhorn. You can call me Steph.

I'm a nerd who lives in Northern California wine country with my nerdy husband and our two nerdy cats. My poison includes weird little speculative stories with snappy dialogue. Sometimes I dream in verse. My favorite color is turquoise. I like to watch the fog crawl across the valley. I am what some would call "wee." Feminism is strong in my blood. My literary idols include Madeline L'Engle, J.K. Rowling, Markus Zusak, Neil Gaiman, and many more. Et cetera.

If you'd like to read some of my writing samples, you can find them here on the blog under the "writing samples" label or under my Figment profile. My short story, "Chasing Shadows," was selected by Holly Black as the YA winner and overall runner-up for the 2010 Katherine Paterson Prize for YA and Children's Writing. I still have my "congratulations" letter taped to the wall by my desk, and it still makes me smile.

You can also find me on Tumblr on my personal blog and my daily-YA Tumblr, YA!Flash.
