Author Bio

A. L. Munson (Choctaw name: Onnahinli Hinak Bitepuli, or “Morning Rainbow.”) is a writer from St. Rose, Louisiana and an enrolled tribe member of the Vancleave Live Oak Choctaw of Mississippi. She holds an MLIS specializing in archival studies from Louisiana State University, a PBC in paralegal studies/criminal law from Tulane University, a BA in sociology/criminology from Louisiana State University, and a CertTESOL from Oxford TEFL Prague. She is currently pursuing a second bachelor’s degree in physics.

Since leaving Louisiana, she has lived in the Czech Republic, Romania, New York, and Kansas and has held every position from criminal defense paralegal to museum clerk. She now resides in Wichita where she works as an archivist and practices archery and photography on her free time.

Munson’s main writing genres are sci-fi, horror, and fantasy, but she sometimes writes mysteries, crime dramas, war novels, historical fiction, comedies, and poetry. She is working on what she hopes will be her debut novel, though short stories and poems tend to steal her attention away from it.
