Ezra graduated from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke in 2017, with a Bachelors of Arts in English and minors in both Literature and British Studies. He then pursued a Masters in Information and Library Science from Appalachian State University, and was awarded the degree in May 2020.
He currently works as a YA Library Associate in North Carolina and spends much of his free time reading and writing, as one might expect of an aspiring novelist. A self-described enthusiastic scholar, he has made an effort to read more nonfiction since graduating, so as to continue learning about his favorite topics; his particular areas of interest include Medieval English History, Forensic Science, Prohibition Era America, and LGBTQ+ Studies.
