C. V. Wyk was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, the biracial daughter of a Mexican mother and Filipino father. She has lived in five states in the continental US and hopes to someday add a few international locales to that list.
Prone to wanderlust and getting lost, Wyk likes to explore local hiking trails, mountain ranges, dark caves where nefarious mythical creatures undoubtedly reside, and libraries. She currently lives in Maryland with a precocious mini poodle.
In her not-so-spare time, she enjoys playing MMORPGs, kayaking, coding, staring listlessly at blank walls, and nursing a totally healthy coffee addiction.
