Kaci Skiles Laws is a closet cat-lady and creative writer who reads and writes voraciously in the quiet moments between motherhood and managing Crohn's Disease. She grew up on a small farm in a Texas town alongside many furry friends, two sisters, and a brother. She has known tragic loss too well, and her writing which is often dark and honest, with themes of death, suicide, codependency, generational trauma, night terrors, and other bizarre musings, is a reflection of the shadows lurking in her psyche.

She was awarded second place for her poem, "This is How it Ends," by North Central Texas College's English Department and is currently working on a chapbook, a book of two sentence horror stories, and a children's book called The Boogerman. Some of her visual artwork can be viewed on her and her husband's YouTube channel listed under Kaci and Bryant.
