Elizabeth Kuehne is a writer and teacher who lives east of Albuquerque and south of the sun. She aspires to write in a variety of genres, particularly crime fiction, though for now her mind is consumed with ways to encourage the growth of young writers and readers. She has been published numerous times in Adjunct Nation with academic blogs and discourse, and she writes a semi-monthly blog that tends to gain traction when she’s been drinking wine. Elizabeth has one book published, Notes to People, a collection of reflections on human interactions that begin in person and complete themselves in her imagination. Last year, she made $14.49 in royalties, spurring her desire to purchase a dish of creme fraiche. She has been ruined for life now. Pastries will never be the same. Her next book, Stinkbug, is a crime novel that is clearly defining her as a “pantser” and takes more twists and turns than she can keep up with. Her desire is to complete that novel and dabble in a variety of other genres. Currently she is working on a series of essays with the purpose to help others rethink how high school English teachers teach. She’s got too many ideas and not enough hours in a day to make them all come to fruition quickly, but she keeps at it. One day, she will see a larger royalties check and also get her essays graded.
