About Me

Kylie Lee Baker is the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Keeper of Night duology, The Scarlet Alchemist duology, and the forthcoming adult horror Bat Eater. She grew up in Boston and has since lived in Atlanta, Salamanca, and Seoul. Her writing is informed by her heritage (Japanese, Chinese, and Irish), as well as her experiences living abroad as both a student and teacher. She has a BA in creative writing and Spanish from Emory University and a master of library and information science degree from Simmons University.

Bonus round of bullets telling you basically all you need to know about me:

  • I taught English to children in South Korea for a few years (and miss Korea every day!)

  • I regularly consume amounts of chocolate that should not be safe for humans.

  • There is no one on Earth who enjoys Halloween more than me.

  • No, I’m not sick, my skin is actually that white. Yes, I go outside (occasionally).

  • I’m 1/4 Chinese, 1/4 Japanese, and 1/2 Irish/really pale European. If I ever have $200 lying around I’ll do one of the spit-in-the-tube DNA tests and get back to you with more specific percentages.

  • Along those same lines: “Lee” is my mother’s maiden name and it’s Chinese, not English or Korean (in my case). No, I don’t think “Kylie Lee” sounds weird.

  • Every stereotype about awkward writers can safely be applied to me.

  • We can’t be friends if you like the Yankees. I don’t even watch baseball, this is just a Boston thing.

My mailing list will consist of writing updates. The Korea blog has been archived.
