“I had always thought science was my calling, but it turns out magic is the thing that hearts are made of.”
T.L. Stoltz is a YA-fiction writer and freelance nutrition writer. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota with her animator husband and curmudgeon cat.
T.L grew up in North Dakota, where the prairies were tall and the stars were close. As a child, she wrote short stories. As a young adult, she studied physiology and memorized micronutrients—and then wrote poetry.
She believes in being as many things as you want to be—no matter how contrary. Give her evidenced-based proof and then give her magic. By day, she is a licensed and registered clinician. She does calculations, diagnoses malnutrition, and places feeding tubes. She loves nutrition, cooking, yoga, snowboarding, books, music, scientific journals, Irish pubs, and above all, the magic that is storytelling. She’s drawn to the adventure and discovery of travel and dreams of seeing every possible corner of the world. In fact, it was in one particular corner of Scotland where the vision for her WIP novel The Long Way Out came to life.
When T.L. isn’t working or writing, she’s pursuing her many passions. She has a Bachelor’s of Science from the University of Minnesota and works at the University of Minnesota Medical Center. She is member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and the Loft Literary Center. Feel free to contact her regarding freelance work.
THE LONG WAY OUT is a young adult (YA) novel about facing fear in order to discover possibility.
Sixteen-year-old girl scientist, Ryn Sollow, must let go of logic in order to find the Stone Arc and escape her fear-infested, dream-deprived town. But the Stone Arc isn’t what she thinks it is.
THE LONG WAY OUT is complete at 87,000 and is currently in the submission phase.
I wrote short stories as a child and poetry in my teens. For some of the old and more of the new, check out my poetry blog for regular poetry posts. Stay turned for upcoming short stories. And an excuse to celebrate the spirit of Halloween year round . . .
