Soquel G. BaumgardnerGenre: YA Urban Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Fairy Tales
Soquel Gladrielle Baumgardner pronounces her name SOH-kel BAHM-GARRD-ner but also answers to Your Majesty. She has lived in 50 different homes, most notably next door to the famous Oak Alley Plantation and in a Victorian house in the middle of a California broccoli field which was said by locals to be haunted by a ghost in a space suit. Such were her formative years, in case anyone should wonder why she writes urban fantasy, alternative historical fiction, and fairy tales. She currently teaches creative writing to students in grades 6-12 at a private school in Las Vegas, NV. Soquel's work is included in ANWA's 2018 book on the craft of writing, which is titled Create, Craft, Critique, and More.
