B.C. Krygowski started off her too long academic career by becoming a Rotary International exchange student to Germany. After she came back home, she needed rent money in undergrad, so a patient family hired her as a private chef. After obtaining bachelor degrees in German and Biology (she couldn’t make up her mind) B.C. went off to med school at University at Buffalo. There she fell in love with her future husband when they were Gross Anatomy partners. Currently, B.C. works in Palliative Care at the VA and uses her overactive imagination to write a Young Adult series based on Veterans’ war stories. When she’s not out running on the trail, she’s dashing after her two sons—who keep her from getting a full night’s sleep.
