A librarian and writer, Elaine Cuyegkeng lives with her partner in Melbourne, working feverishly on her first novel. She is possessed of two tiny familiars, shelves full of magnificent books, and items of immense geekery. She loves myths and fairy tales, and occasionally dabbles in their making. “The Widow and the Princess of the Dwende” is her first short story with Usok.
