Mikki Helmer is both a writer and a rider. She writes stories about LGBT+ characters in fantasy settings. When not writing, she can be found on the back of a horse seeking a new adventure in the wilds of the western United States or at the barn, training her horses in dressage and jumping.
A #ownvoices author, she resides in central Utah with her two horses and several cats. She is a staunch supporter of LGBT+ rights and equal representation of minorities in stories with triumphant endings. In supporting correct and fair representation, she frequently works as a sensitivity editor. Her short fiction, poetry, and literature reviews have been published in university journals, queer anthologies, and other online magazines.
Mikki is also obsessed with tiny houses, and built one in 2018.
