Cole Nagamatsu is the author of the YA contemporary fantasy We Were Restless Things, from Sourcebooks Fire. Her short fiction has been published online and in print at cream city review, Tin House, and West Branch, among other publications. She is the editor-in-chief of Psychopomp Magazine, a journal of genre-bending prose. By day she’s a creative writing professor, and when she isn’t teaching or writing, she’s usually reading, watching horror movies, or playing video games. Cole was born and raised on the east coast but now resides in Minnesota with her partner and their cat, Kalahira.
