Critically acclaimed, #1 New York Times best-selling author Aprilynne Pike has been spinning tales since she was a child with a hyper-active imagination. At the age of twenty she received her BA in Creative Writing from Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. She recently concluded her first series, Wings, a paranormal romance about a fifteen-year-old girl who discovers she's a faerie. Her next series, Earthbound, debuts in 2013, as does her stand-alone novel Life After Theft. When not writing, Aprilynne can usually be found out running; she also enjoys singing, acting, reading, and working with pregnant moms as a childbirth educator and doula. Aprilynne lives in Glendale, Arizona with her husband and four kids; she is enjoying the sunshine.
