Caitlin Upshall is a British-American author and composer. Before she could write, she would dictate stories to her mother, usually about characters with rhyming names. She went on to almost fail all of her classes in school by opting to write stories instead of taking notes. She graduated from Western Washington University with a B.A. in Creative Writing and Spanish, and then earned a Master's in Public Administration from The Evergreen State College.

In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, crossword-ing, dinosaur films, and reading about the Great Emu War (seriously, look it up!). 


My newest publication, "Gertrude's First Home" is now available in Short Fiction, as their August Featured Story.
