Born in Washington State in the early years of the 1970's, Eleri Hamilton has been a denizen of the Pacific Northwest ever since. She is a woman of varied talents, having worked as a florist, an actress, a doula, and a salad bar attendant; as well as working and running conventions, planning events, developing puzzles and games, writing, making things, doing website and graphic design, painting and generally juggling more things than she really needs to be!
She can usually be found herding cats, teaching Birthing From Within childbirth education classes, reading and/or generally being awesome; all while living in an oft discombobulated home north of Seattle, WA that she shares with her spouse, one of her kids, and a menagerie of pets.
