About Me




Aj Sterkel: first of her name, the unchilled, queen of the books and the nachos, kahleesi of the great sprawling suburbs, breaker of desk chairs, and mother of dogs.



Hi! My name is Aj. I live in the flat part of Colorado, USA with my dogs and my books. When I’m not reading, I’m hiking, camping, exploring, taking nature photos, avoiding human contact, rewatching Game of Thrones, or retweeting hilarious things.



I have a BA in English literature from the University of Colorado Denver, a certificate in publishing from Western State Colorado University, and a master’s degree in writing for children and young adults from Spalding University. Basically, this means:

A. I have lots of opinions about books.
B. I can put the letters MFA after my name whenever I’m feeling extra pretentious.



My goal in life is to make “Nacho Enthusiast” a real career. If that doesn’t work, my Plan B is to start a children’s book publishing company. Until then, I hope you enjoy my blog!
