Isabel Galupo is a queer, part-Filipina, Jewish woman with three moms and a dad (yeah, you read that right). After being an only child for 10 years, Isabel found herself an overnight oldest kid with four younger sisters; this made her really good at changing diapers, but also at observing, adapting, and - at times - escaping into genre fiction. It only makes sense, then, that she grew up to be a writer, constantly drawing on her unusual family dynamic and intersecting identities to tell stories at the knife's edge of painful insight and bizarre heart.


Isabel graduated from Ithaca College as a Park Scholar with a B.S. in screenwriting and a minor in sociology, and participated in the Lambda Literary Writer’s Retreat for Emerging LGBT Voices in 2015. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband.
