Her favorite things are coffee, dark chocolate, Star Wars, and Princess Bride. By day she wrangles legal cases and hearing schedules for a small administrative court. At night, after cooking dinner, checking homework, and walking the dog, she writes and reads as much as possible. As KB Sluss, Karissa’s short stories have appeared in Daily Science Fiction, Cast of Wonders, and Lumina Station Quarterly. As Karissa Laurel, she is the author of several adult and YA novels. Her latest, “Heir of Thunder”, is a YA fantasy about the daughter of the god of thunder.
