Bri Lopez Donovan was born and raised in Long Beach, California, until she moved with her family to a small, rural Minnesota town when she was 11. There, she grew out of her love for country music and all things western and into a political, queer adolescent. Being queer in a town with a population under 2,000, a high-school class of 98, and a community where parties took places at churches and VFW halls left Bri feeling kind of odd and alone. She began writing her thoughts and ideas in the form of musings on her family’s large, clunky desktop computer. It was an outlet, but it wasn’t enough. Soon, despite the limited time she was given on the dial-up internet, she took to the interwebs to find others like her and a sense of belonging. Bri has loved discussing politics and social justice on online forums ever since.

After moving to the Twin Cities, she met a wonderful lady (now her wifey) who introduced her to conventions, cosplay, and the wonderful world of geekery. Bri’s writing has since expanded into poetry, short stories, and novels (that have yet to be finished.) She dabbles in all things queer and sexy and seeks to boost marginalized communities. Her most recent adventures in writing include intersectional-feminist erotica; her WordPress blog, Over Caffeinated; and YA horror.

When she isn’t working or writing, Bri enjoys trying new brews (she’s a bit of a beer snob), coffee, teatime, cooking, and exploring all over with her dog friend Gracie. Adventure Time and Futurama are her favorites, and as far as books go, she is not to be trusted with a library card.
