S.K. Lamont hails from a land of castles and dragons, well maybe not dragons! But she does miss Scotland a lot, and uses her homesickness to conjure up exciting adventures in wild Scottish landscapes. She hopes to go back home one day and live on the side of a cliff.

Her and her husband love going to art shows and restaurants in and around Asheville, or getting cozy and watching movies together. In the future they plan to travel to faraway places.
