Tibetan Lemonade is devoted to all things writing–from tips and tricks to creative pieces from a diverse number of authors. The blog is run by Kelsey Stone and regularly features guest articles from authors in all stages of their writing career.
Kelsey is a speculative fiction author known for her dark sense of humor, wildly inappropriate ideas and occasionally foul mouth. She’s currently working on her Masters of Fine Art in Fiction at Oregon State University. Nothing gets her more excited than a well-written line, and she spends the bulk of her days agonizing over the lines she writes. Kelsey is always looking for authors to work with and support on her blog.
Before launching her writing career, Kelsey dabbled in law enforcement and teaching, finding both simultaneously rewarding and devastating and she continues to be passionate about both. At 0200 hours on Wednesday, August 26th, 2015, she woke up in the midst of a panic attack because she realized she wasn’t getting any younger. The fear that she would never realize her dreams drove her into a frenzy of creation that has lead to countless paper cuts, one concussion, the loss of her beloved Spock necklace, and her husband nearly declaring her missing.
