Marika Autrand lives in New Jersey and writes YA and NA novels. She graduated from Rutgers University with a B.A. in English and a M.Ed. in English Education, and she teaches seventh grade language arts. (This means she’s surrounded by books and awkwardness everyday. She loves it.)
When she’s not selling Shakespeare to teenagers, she’s at home with Best Husband Ever making her two daughters laugh. Marika dreams of one day owning a bed and breakfast because she thinks it’d be a great excuse to live on a farm and bake scones all day. If you have other ideas for how to make the farm/scone dream happen, she’d love to hear from you.
