Shawn MacKENZIE (Southern Vermont) is a life-long student of the strange and mysterious—myths, arts, religions, sciences, the occult—as well as all creatures, seen and unseen, real, cryptic, great, and small. She’s the author of The Dragon Keeper’s Handbook ; Dragons for Beginners; Llewellyn’s Little Book of Dragons, and the upcoming Tarot of Dragons (Llewellyn, 2022 – pre-order now), as well as numerous essays and fictions. Minnesotan by birth, she now lives in the shadow of the Green Mountains with ten cats, a guinea pig, and an Amazon parrot.
She’s currently working on The Amazifying World of Eze’l Katz, a fanciful tale of adventurous – and artistic – cats, mice, and their friends in Paris.
