From Etowah, TN, Sara Hopper, now lives in Maryville with her husband Michael and two cats. She has a business degree from Tennessee Wesleyan College and a master’s in educational psychology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. In her spare time, she enjoys bargain hunting at yard sales, estate sales, and anywhere else she can find a deal. She works in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at UTK and is currently the treasurer for the Knoxville Writers’ Guild.
Victoria Raschke can’t spell but did manage an M.A. in English from the University of Tennessee and a culinary arts degree from Nashville State Community College. Her first book Who by Water will be released in April 2017. Victoria lives in Knoxville with her cats and human family, who really appreciate that culinary degree. She is currently on the Knoxville Writers’ Guild Communications Committee and edits the Guild blog.
Victoria Raschke writes books that start with questions like “what if you didn’t find out you were the chosen one until you were in your forties?” When she isn’t holed up in her favorite coffee house to write, she can be found at the nearest farmers’ market checking out the weird vegetables or at her home where she lives with a changing number of cats and her family who supports both her writing and her culinary experimentation — for the most part. Her first book, Who by Water, was published in 2017.
