Piper Selden  is a writer, educator, and activist. She lives in Hilo, on
the Big Island of Hawaii, with her husband, two children, and a small menagerie of animals. When not writing, teaching, or dodging lava flows, she enjoys playing in the dirt: gardening, making herbal potions, and tending a busy worm farm. She does most her writing at night, when the moon is high and the house is quiet. Piper writes and has published in a variety of genres, including academia and the sciences, creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. Upcoming books include Beyond the Frontier: Innovations in First-Year Composition (a series of academic books), Invisible Daughters (a memoir), and The Momcologist is In: Life, Parenting, and Cancer (a most unusual kind of guidebook).
