A fan of everything spooky and indulgent, Kit Mayquist is a trans male writer who can be found in the historic shadows of Boston, MA, hunched over his desk with a sullen Persian cat in his lap and surrounded in antiques. His short-fiction piece, INDELICATE has been featured in Mythridate Magazine, where he is also an editor. He has a MA degree in Medieval History from the University of Iceland, and a BA from Portland State University (and if you ask him, yes, Stumptown will always have the best coffee).
His novel, TRIPPING ARCADIA, follows a medical assistant as she recounts her role in the death of her billionaire employer through a series of poisons at Gothic, Gatsby-esque parties in 21st century Boston, while uncovering the mystery of his drunken, poetic heir’s illness, and battling growing feelings for his disgraced daughter.
Kit is being co-represented by Sam Hiyate and Emmy Nordstrom Higdon.
