I write YA books and I'm also entrusted with taking care of other people's children. I write books about girls who are strong in all different ways, usually with a healthy dollop of magic and a few dragons.

I live in NYC with my extraordinarily fluffy dog, Neville.

“We are not defined by the things we do in order to survive. We do not apologize for them,” she says quietly, eyes never leaving mine. “Maybe they have broken you, but you are a sharper weapon because of it. And it is time to strike.”
Laura Sebastian, Ash Princess

“I was a princess made of ashes; there is nothing left of me to burn.
Now it's time for a queen to rise.”
Laura Sebastian, Ash Princess

“Is it better to have your life ended by someone who hates you or someone who loves you?”
Laura Sebastian, Ash Princess
