S. E. Chase has spent a career as a curator, interpretive specialist and exhibition planner in history and technology museums. As is common in the 'many hats' world of nonprofits, she has written more than her share of grant applications, exhibition scripts, budget statements and management reports. From scrounging through basement cisterns for artifacts to exploring the history of electrical technology, she's absorbed a wealth of materials to use as creative raw material for fiction writing. She also happens to be the author of several nonfiction history publications about places and people in New York State and Delaware under the name Stephanie Przybylek.
After growing up in Northwestern PA, and spending more than a decade in the snowy winters of the Finger Lakes and Upstate New York, she decamped to the temperate Mid-Atlantic and Chesapeake Bay region to experience actual springtime and enjoy the taste of steamed crabs and beer.
S. E. loves traveling (yes, she has been to Iceland and wants to return), beer brewing, horse racing, photography and exploring nature. She's a musician, artist, writer and lover of animals, currently answering to two cats and a Shiba Inu.
This is her first novel.
