Griffin has been telling stories to entertain her friends since she was little, but she only started seriously putting pen to paper after winning NaNoWriMo in 2005 and 2006. She’s gone on from there to win NaNoWriMo every year since. Now she is the NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison for North Idaho.
Besides writing, Griffin is a student of swordsmanship. She started with Olympic foil and saber before moving on to study more classical weapons (Longsword being her favorite).
