Charlotte Joyce Kidd's writing is usually about depression, dysfunctional families, and messy relationships, but IRL she is laughing more often than not. She grew up in beautiful Vancouver and currently resides in Toronto, which she finds more comfortably misshapen. She is a librarian with the Toronto Public Library and one of the writers of the web series Friendship, and is currently working on a novel.
