Kaci Kai’s childhood nickname was Crazy Kaci.

She once fought a girl in a ring in Thailand. And won. She sold all her possessions and traveled as a nomad for more than a year. She jumped out of an airplane. Twice (and counting). Swam with sharks. Bungee jumped. She won two cooking competitions. And chased tornadoes with her dad as a kid.

But the scariest, craziest thing she’s done to date? She wrote and published It Happens to Strong People, Too.

Kaci Kai is a writer and publisher living in Austin, Texas.
