Young Adult Fantasy
Rosaria grew up in rural North Carolina, where she kayaked in the yard after floods, helped her mother clean the local movie theater, and chalked Ancient Greek messages to her friends on the sidewalk of their trailer park. She left home early with a scholarship to a New England boarding school to continue her study of dead languages. At Princeton, she majored in political theory and creative writing, winning several awards for her written work in both departments and enjoying the combination of majors as the perfect foundation for an aspiring SFF writer. This book was written while Rosaria taught English in Beijing. Now living in Chicago with her husband, Rosaria continues to teach by day and write by night.
