K McEvern Lestrade is never too busy to dream up new ways to explore the way people meet, get to know each other, and fall in love. Balancing teaching and raising small humans tests the concept of ‘too busy’ on the regular, but she loves the challenge. Her first short story, Risk is published in Love and Other Kerfuffles. She noodles around on Twitter at @mcevernlestrade and updates on her work can be found at kmcevernlestrade.com.
