About The Author

Laini Taylor

Laini Taylor, a self-described “writer-artist-daydreamer-nerd-person,” is an American author and artist located in Portland, Oregon, USA.

Random facts about Laini:

“Some of my favorite things are books and bookstores and breakfast food and mangoes and chocolate,

and dreaming up stories, and making stuff (like cupcakes or peculiar dolls),
and playing with Jim and Clementine, and taking pictures,
and falling asleep (so cozy) and waking up (exciting!).”
