Caitlin Hernandez -


Caitlin Hernandez’s love of young-adult literature is rivaled only by her fondness for ice cream with Oreos and anything and everything rainbow. A Lambda fellow in 2015, Caitlin’s fiction has earned her mentorships from Writing in The Margins and We Need Diverse Books. Her nonfiction appears in the disability studies textbook Barriers and Belonging and the forthcoming Land of Firsts anthology. Totally blind since birth, Caitlin lives in San Francisco, where she teaches elementary-school special education. She’s also seeking a new a cappella group who will appreciate her rusty perfect pitch and “blawkward” dance moves. Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff!
