S.C. Houff is the daughter of a revolutionary and a TV quiz master. A natural story teller and a full-time geek, she has been known to tell a tale or two which is mostly considered lying. She is not a liar but the author behind the From the Files of the Department of the Arcane series. While not having received any awards for her fiction, she is a two-time Geography Bee Champion and once lettered in marching band. She is also the co-host of the Adventures of Todd and Shannon podcast and an unrepentant selfie-taker. When not writing or podcasting, S.C. Houff can be found taking a nap or hanging out with a tiny beagle named Watson.
