Therin Knite was born and raised in backwoods Virginia, USA. Currently in her mid-twenties, Therin holds a degree in English and Finance from the College of William & Mary. Once upon a time, she worked for an insurance company in the big city, but these days, she writes books under the pen names Therin Knite (science fiction) and Clara Coulson (urban fantasy).

Therin spends most of her time (when she’s not writing) dreaming up new story ideas, studying Japanese, and slowly reading through the several-hundred-book backlog in her budding home library.

If she’s not occupied with any of those things, then you can probably find her playing with her two cats or lurking in the shadows of various social media websites.
