zhang Kat Zhang

Kat Zhang loves traveling to places both real and fictional — the former have better souvenirs, but the latter allow for dragons, so it’s a tough pick. A graduate of Vanderbilt University, she now spends her free time scribbling poetry, taking photographs, and climbing on top of things she shouldn’t. She is the author of the young adult trilogy “The Hybrid Chronicles,” and her debut middle-grade novel, “The Emperor’s Riddle.” You can learn about her travels, literary and otherwise, at KatZhangWriter.com.
