Emlyn Boyd is a Native adoptee with rheumatoid arthritis that leaves her somewhat disabled. She studied anthropology in college, but was unable to fulfill her dream of working internationally with marginalized youth because of her health. So, she writes young adult fantasy with an eye for diversity and a splash of sci fi.

She is slightly obsessed with Minecraft

And coffee

Also tacos

Her main faults include chain-drinking hot tea and taking too many pictures of her dog.

In addition to her husband, her son, and her freckly dog, one source of pride for Emlyn is her massively awesome geeky t-shirt collection. Emlyn loves that her shirts show her appreciation for Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Percy Jackson, Doctor Who, Hunger Games, snarky humor, various super heroes, and Outlander.

Future plans include adding some nerdy t-shirts to her stash and finding a smokier lapsang souchong tea.
