Taryn Stickrath-Hutt

Taryn Stickrath-Hutt is a writer, painter, filmmaker, queer woman, and joyfully exhausted mother.  Her top priorities are smashing the patriarchy, eating great pizza, and writing about topics ranging from spiritual epiphanies to haunted houses to hardboiled detectives (sometimes all at once).  An Angeleno at heart and former Disney Imagineer, she now lives in Chicago with a focus on independent projects in fiction, film, and personal essay. She is a member of Midwest Buddhist Temple where she heads Niji Dharma, a program developing LGBTQ+ community initiatives rooted in Buddhist principles. She offers her deepest gratitude for the opportunity to publish her work with Lion’s Roar.
