Suzy Vitello:
Suzy Vitello writes and lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and her dog and occasionally one or more of their five kids. She holds an MFA from Antioch, Los Angeles, and has been a recipient of an Oregon Literary Arts grant. She’s a ridiculous Portland Timbers and Thorns fan, so don’t talk to her for at least a day after a match loss. Her young adult novels include The Moment Before and the Empress Chronicles series.
