Mara Rutherford began her writing career as a journalist but quickly discovered she far preferred fantasy to reality. Originally from California, Mara has since lived all over the world, from Russia to Peru, along with her Marine-turned-diplomat husband and two sons. A triplet born on Leap Day, Mara holds a Master's degree in Cultural Studies from the University of London and would rather study the folklore of her next post than the language (which she has found is a lot more fun but not nearly as useful). She is a former Pitch Wars mentee and three-time mentor. Her debut YA fantasy, CORAL AND PEARL, will release from Harlequin Teen in Fall 2019.

Luminous by Mara Rutherford
"I was lucky enough to be a sensitivity reader for this enchanting book! The magic, the adventure, the drama, the artistry! It's a lovely combination that makes for a thrilling tale."

“Those who have never known pain or adversity are as shallow as the waves lapping on the shore."

"And what is wrong with being shallow?" I'd asked him.

"What lies beneath the surface of shallow waters? Nothing. It's only when you go deeper that the ocean comes alive. The deeper you go, the more mysteries and surprises await.”
Mara Rutherford, Crown of Coral and Pearl

“Hiding our scars doesn't mean they're not really there. Just as beauty cannot disguise who we really are beneath the surface.”
Mara Rutherford, Crown of Coral and Pearl

“Mother had given us one gift, at least, that no amount of time or distance could erase: each other.”
Mara Rutherford
