CIMG5252.JPGHailing from California, "Queen" Von Der Lohe started her dramatic career in first grade when she played a mouse in the one-act play, "Belling the Cat." Ever since she took her first theatre class in high school, she has been involved in numerous theatrical productions (Much Ado About Nothing, Eleemosynary, Anne of Green Gables, Peter Pan, Medea, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Hecuba, to name a few). She enjoyed drama and literature so much that she majored in Theatre Education and minored in English at Brigham Young University. She later earned a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Children's Literature from Hollins University.

From 2007–2013 she taught middle school theatre and language arts classes at Oquirrh Hills Middle School in Utah. In 2013, she relocated to California.

She has presented research papers at the Children's Literature Association Conference, the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, and the Francelia Butler Conference. She also had the honor of publishing scholarly articles in The Looking Glass: New Perspectives on Children's Literature*
and the Eaton Journal of Archival Research in Science Fiction.

Some of her interests include: acting, arts and crafts, chocolate, cookie eating, creative writing, crochet, daydreaming, fantasy and science fiction, frogs, Internet surfing, leaf-jumping, movies, picnics, puddle-stomping, puppetry, reading, steampunk, television, theatre, traveling, ukulele playing, and so on.

*NOTE: The article published in The Looking Glass closely examines various editions of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and contains strong language within context.
