K. Syrah was born in Asia, raised in Europe before making her home in the United States. She grew up assimilating and critiquing various cultures. She spent her first six years of adulthood in seven different states, and hasn’t stopped moving since. Her ability to analyze culture as an outsider has fueled her writing, much of which can be found on her social-commentary themed weblog, Shoes Never Worn. She is one half of a dual-military couple that will soon be experiencing a simultaneous deployment to two different theatres.
