Growing up in both the Netherlands and in Asia, KD Rossly’s life has always been a kaleidoscope of culture and art. She’s a former TV show host, singer, actress, model, and radio DJ. Over the recent years, she started her writing career and has written articles for both Asian and U.S. publications.

On the weekends, KD attends Hogwarts (proudly sorted into Hufflepuff), trains her dragon, does archery at Avengers headquarters, and binge eats ice cream.
She believes in the power of pizza and in the magic of never giving up.
