Aprilynne Pike is a critically acclaimed, international and #1 New York Times bestselling novelist. Her genre-spanning work has garnered starred reviews from Publisher's Weekly, Booklist, Bulletin, and VOYA and been published in more then twenty-five languages worldwide.

At the age of twenty, Aprilynne received her B.A. in Creative Writing from Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. Before her literary debut, she was employed as a waitress, a restaurant manager, a slush-pile reader, an editor, a childbirth educator, and a doula. When she isn't writing, she enjoys running, singing, acting, and--of course--reading. Aprilynne now lives in Florida with her husband and their four children; she is enjoying the ocean.
