Mika Grimmer

Author. Bibliophile. Potter.

Mika Grimmer is a queer author of fantasy short stories and novels of various flavors. She graduated from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies with a concentration in culture, literature, and the arts in 2008.


While biding her time until the twice-postponed 2020 Taos Toolbox cohort could finally meet in the summer of 2022, she fell avidly in love with Grand Sumo and filled many of her free hours during the stay-at-home orders brushing up on her rusty Japanese and watching perhaps too much Grand Sumo.


Mika lives with her husband in Seattle, Washington, and when she isn’t writing, she is likely throwing pottery, knitting, watching sumo, or playing the guitar very ill, indeed.
