Who I Am

My name is Brighton, and I used to get busted in class reading books under my desk.

Now, I write about sky pirates. And sinister shapeshifters. And girls who lie. On the weird journey between getting called out by teachers for not paying attention and writing a novel about the three mentioned previously, I was a design student, marketing intern, and hackathon winner.

Up until this past year, I was the Editor-in-Chief of a college newspaper where I covered everything from Wonder Woman to our exuberant basketball coach to what it’s like being multiracial in the United States.

I live in a tiny apartment in a big city. In my free time, I doodle things and fuss around on my piano, and I’ve had a couple short stories win awards. You’re most likely to find me at a cheap sushi place or at a used bookstore, stretching to reach the top shelf.
