Chanda Riddick spent her childhood in California and grew up in Texas. Her unofficial writing career started around age 6, when her teddy bears Timmy, Tommy, and Martine took it upon themselves to save Abearica in an epic multi-journal adventure that took most of second grade to write. From there, she has bounced into similarly epic endeavors in fanfiction and an unpublished trilogy that was lost during the move to Texas. She will always remember the pride she felt when an English teacher believed in her and had her submit her short story about all the sensual pleasures of exploring a bookstore.
Chanda currently enjoys life with her wife, two dogs, and bunny. Oh, and a moss ball affectionately named Sushi-Nori.
