Rine Karr \’rin-ē ‘kär\ (she/they) is a writer by moonlight and a cog in the machine by daylight. She holds a bachelor’s degree in anthropology, archaeology, and religious studies, as well as multiple master’s degrees in international human rights, Buddhist studies, and Buddhist art history. As a perpetual learner, Rine can likely be found reading books, drinking tea, and meditating in her spare time. She also loves to travel, and pieces of Rine’s heart remain in Hong Kong and London, cities she called home for a time. Rine, however, currently lives with her partner in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains on the traditional land of the Arapaho, Cheyenne, Sioux, and Ute. She is also currently—and almost always—in the midst of writing a novel.

Rine has also moonlighted as a contributing writer at Girls in Capes, a chief copy editor and contributing writer at Women Write About Comics, as well as a blog formatter and financial administrator for WriteOnCon. In 2020, she participated in the Cybils Awards as a first round panelist for the Young Adult Fiction/Speculative Fiction category.
