Nora Olsen's debut novel, The End: Five Queer Kids Save The World, was published by Prizm Books in December 2010. It's the story of five LGBT teens who must travel through time to avert a nuclear war. Her second novel, Swans & Klons, was published Bold Strokes Books' Soliloquy imprint in May 2013 and is a dystopian YA novel about two girls who fall in love as they join the struggle to free enslaved clones. Frenemy of the People (2014) is the story of two girls who hate each other... until they fall in love. MAXINE WORE BLACK, forthcoming in October 2014, is a queer YA homage to Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca.
