Souri graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in American Studies and Politics. It was there that she cultivated an interest in unreadable German philosophers, good Thai food, and – most of all – the free exchange of ideas and knowledge. It was also in college that she decided to pursue publishing as a career path. When she isn’t working, Souri enjoys reading, hiking, road trips and participating in lengthy discussions about nerdy things. She hopes one day to start and finish writing a story.
