Jody Sollazzo grew up in the suburbs of New York. She now lives in Northern California with her partner, their dragon-loving daughter, and food-loving dog. She works in mental health, disability rights, and anti-bullying. Always a fan of bad timing, she is also achieving her life long dream of being a writer. Her short stories appear in several anthologies. She is working on a novel that is a role reversal of Beauty & The Beast that takes place in a prep school with time-traveling fairies with disabilities.
