#1 New York Times bestselling author of the An Ember in the Ashes
series, which has been translated into over thirty-five languages.
She grew up in California's Mojave Desert at her family's
eighteen-room motel. There, she spent her time devouring fantasy
novels, raiding her brother's comic book stash, and playing guitar
badly. She began writing An Ember in the Ashes while working nights
as a newspaper editor. She likes thunderous indie rock, garish
socks, and all things nerd.
