Crista  Mchugh

Crista McHugh grew up in a tiny town in Alabama, and storytelling was a natural way for her to pass the time and entertain her two younger sisters. Of course, this means she's prone to the same flaws that afflict many southern writers, such as excessive use of simile and metaphor, exaggeration, melodramatic writing style, and the ever-popular long-winded sentence. She and her husband and kid now reside in the Audi-filled suburbs of Seattle, where she keeps her alter persona of mild-mannered physician by day and pursues writing on nights and weekends. Here are some of the professions she's worked to pay the bills in the past: barista, bartender, sommelier, stagehand, actor, morgue attendant, and autopsy assistant, just for laughs. She's also a LARPer in remission. (She attributes it to her wild college days.)
