Bio

Kristina Elyse Butke reads, writes, and teaches, while occasionally indulging in cosplay and all things otaku.

She has a BA 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. She’s been an English adjunct; 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! You can currently find her working as a content editor and contributor for Speculative Chic.


Kristina 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.
