About Me

Betsey Horton is a writer from Washington, D.C. She moved to a small town in the middle of nowhere in South Dakota in her early 20’s. There, she had what can only be described as “The Adventure of a Lifetime.” She has been writing and traveling ever since.

Betsey began blogging and self-publishing her fanfiction, short stories, scripts, and novels online in 2002. She was a featured columnist for her college newspaper, The Volante, from 2010-2013.

She attended the Paris Writing Workshop in 2019, the Virginia G. Piper Center “Desert Nights, Rising Stars” Writers Conference in 2021, and the virtual AWP Conference & Bookfair in 2021 and 2022.

Her quotes, tweets, and photos were recently featured by NOLA.com, WWOZ New Orleans, Seize the Show, AWP, BroadwayCon, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and Female Dating Strategy.

Betsey has traveled to 34 states, 30 Indian Reservations, and 5 countries. She currently lives in South Dakota, where she is focused on publishing two books, starting a new blog & freelance business, and applying to graduate school. Someday she hopes to become a successful writer, travel the world, and live in Paris.
