I grew up in a small rural village in Alaska where people still believed in little people, in giants and clawed hags which sought to devour people. With no roads, no connection to the outside world but small airplanes I grew up chasing spirits and ghosts.
Hide your thumbs when walking past a grave and don’t whistle at the northern lights the elders of the village where I grew up always warned.

I later got my degree in Cross-Cultural research as it relates to religion, mythology and fairy tales at the University of Hawaii. I seek to understand fairy tales and the people who told them through the context of religion and culture because this is a large part of where fairy tales come from.
