Courtney “Court” Stevens grew up in the knockabout town of Bandana, Kentucky. She is a former adjunct professor, youth minister, Olympic torchbearer, and bookseller at Parnassus Books in Nashville, TN. These days she writes coming-of-truth fiction and is the community outreach manager for Warren County Public Library in Bowling Green, KY. She has a pet whale named Herman, a bandsaw named Rex, and a tiny fleet of novels with her name on the spine. More importantly, she in search of the perfect biscuit recipe and a kind way to get the children who live in her house to pick up after themselves. Please submit suggestions for either quest to her email.

Court is a rare bird online, but you might spot her occasionally
