Sidney Reetz

Born and residing in Phoenix, Ariz., the caffeine-dependent life-form known as Sidney Reetz started writing in the fourth grade for her own enjoyment. The stories penned back then were during her high fantasy period and involved a lot of dragons, elves and magic. She was 10 years old. Needless to say, they were horrible and will never see the light of day – but were fun to write and taught her a lot about discipline. In elementary school, she entered the short story competition and baffled the organizers when she dropped off a 150-some-odd page manuscript. They must have liked it; she won second place. Her most recent publications include "Fallen Saint" and "From the Darkest Corner." 

When not transcribing the Devil’s words, Reetz is an avid crafter and all-around nerd. She likes listening to true crime podcasts and making themed playlist far too much.
