In 2011, Kristen earned a Masters of Arts Degree in Education and a single subject teaching credential in English language arts from the State of California. She currently works as a freelance writer and editor and private tutor. When she's not working, she spends her time reading literary fiction and nonfiction, "writing" short stories, and watching television and movies of varying degrees of quality.

Amber Morrell (she/her), Content Editor

Amber Morrell

Amber earned her BA in English Literature from California State University, Fullerton. A lifelong California resident, she lived in the desert, the mountains, and the redwoods before settling in Orange County. Amber works as a senior library assistant in a public library system with particular interest in youth services, local history, and digital humanities. Outside of libraries, Amber writes fantasy and science fiction novels for children and young adults. In her meager free time, she enjoys camping with her husband and daughter, playing Dungeons & Dragons, and watching her two new kittens tease her dog.

Maya Lomeli (she/her), Copy Editor

Maya Lomeli

Maya graduated from Southern Oregon University with a B.A. in History. She founded the Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy at Southern Oregon University and served as a student editor, even designing the journal's logo and cover at the time. She is especially interested in aesthetics and the philosophy of art. She makes art in her free time, but the products look more like Rothko, than Hyperrealism. She has worked in libraries since her time as a middle school TA, and is looking forward to graduating from SJSU’s MLIS program this Spring term. She hopes to combine her personal interest in art with her love of libraries by becoming an academic art librarian after graduation.

Ariel Dyer (she/her/hers), Content Editor

Ariel Dyer

Ariel earned her B.A. in English from Westmont College in 2012, and expects to graduate with her MLIS in December of 2021. She has worked as library branch supervisor and later children's library supervisor for three years with the Kern County Library system, and currently works for Bitwise Industries as community events coordinator in Bakersfield, California. She plans to return to public librarianship after acquiring her degree, and bring the skills she has learned from the world of tech startups to library management.
