About Cathlin Shahriary

Cathlin Shahriary graduated from Northern Arizona University with a B.S. in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish Education in 2004. She’s been an elementary teacher since 2015. Currently, she’s a language acquisition specialist in her district focusing on tools and techniques to help students learn English.

Cathlin has been writing since 2015 in her spare time (weekends and school breaks) and published her first book in 2016 with InknBeans Press. Unfortunately, her Boss Bean (co-founder and owner of InknBeans Press) passed away in 2017. Since then, she has self-published the Fae Realm series and is currently expanding her writing into other genres.

She’s been an avid reader for most of her life and her love of books is what ultimately drove her to start writing. You may find Cathlin fangirling over other authors at any given book event or sharing her love of reading with her students.

She lives in north Texas with her husband, cats, and dog. She firmly believes in the existence of magic and the power of love.
