Betsey Horton was born and raised in the suburbs outside of Washington, D.C. She moved to South Dakota when she was 21 and has lived there for 11 years. She hold a Bachelor of Arts in English, History, and French from the University of South Dakota. She attended the Paris Writing Workshop in 2019.

Betsey has been self-publishing online since 2002. She has been featured in The Volante and Total Frat Move. Hopefully someday she will get her life together and publish a real book or start a freelance career or something.

In her free time, Betsey enjoys traveling, design, and horseback riding. She also has an unexplained-yet-intense affinity for basketball. Her dream is to become a professional writer, travel the world, and live in Paris. Someday she’ll get there.
