CS Peterson is a writer living in Denver. She studied theatre at Grinnell, clowning at Ringling Brother’s Clown College, and became a master of Mathematics at SCSU.

When she was fourteen she sang 'Are You Going to Scarborough Fair' to a grizzly bear she met in the wilds of Alaska. When she was twenty-three she toured her own show to Japan.

Currently she leads individualized field work adventures for highly gifted  K-8 students in Colorado. For a treat, she teaches them Latin and mathematics, even though contemplating multiple infinities may engender existential angst in the young. 

She is a voracious reader and consumes contemporary YA fantasy and science fiction at an alarming rate. Be careful if you let her get too near the Tattered Cover or the Boulder Bookstore. She’s been know to buy more books than she can carry!

CS Peterson is part of Clarion West 2019, an alumna of the Lighthouse Writers Workshop Book Project, class of 2015, where she studied fiction writing under the able mentorship of William Haywood Henderson.

She tweets @cspeterson and is a regular contributor to FictionUnbound, blog of speculative fiction.

CSPeterson is represented by Martha Millard at Sterling Lord Literistic
