Bio: Rebecca Yarros is a mom, military wife, blogger (top military blogger this year), and author of Young Adult and New Adult fiction.  In addition to raising an absolute gaggle of somewhat-noisy children, she draws inspiration for her fiction from her favorite authors like Mercedes Lackey, Gayle Forman, and Gena Showalter. 
She’s a graduate of
Troy University, where she studied European history and English, but is still holding out hope for an acceptance letter to Hogwarts.  Her blog, The Only Girl Among Boys, has been voted the Top Military Mom Blog, and celebrates the complex issues surrounding military life that have helped shape her characters, who are strong in the face of odds and meet challenges with courage, tenderness, and grace.
When she’s not writing, she loves to travel with her husband, always seeking to ink up that passport a little more and discover new settings for new novels.  Her favorite destinations include
Paris, Scotland, Istanbul, Mykonos, Capri, and her home state of Colorado.  She’s a guitar-player when no one is watching, and a cake-decorator when everyone is eating.
Rebecca is represented by Jamie Bodnar Drowley of Inklings Literary and her YA novel is currently on submission.
