Dr. Nyri A. Bakkalian is an Armenian-American queer woman by birth and a military historian by training. She is proud to have called the American and Japanese northeasts her home.
She has produced nonfiction, fiction, and photography content for more than a dozen publications, including two newspapers and five anthologies, as well as for Eisner Award-nominated author Magdalene Visaggio’s Kim & Kim. What’s her secret, you ask? Garlic and Turkish coffee (but really mostly Turkish coffee).
