Rori's debut novel, ELECTED, is book one of a young adult sci-fi trilogy, which challenges the notion of duty above desire. She's a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). Rori lives in Seattle with her family and two proficient hair shedders-Misch the cat and Gerry the laid-back black lab. Rori studied public relations and marketing at the University of Maryland and received an MBA from George Washington University. Besides writing, she likes to travel, run, read (of course), go pumpkin-picking and snow-shoe! You can follow Rori and her writing adventures at www.rorishay.com or @RoriShayWrites.

That way I just keep writing through the outline, and there's no point when I bump up against writer's block. The times when I'm feeling verbose and have lots of ideas get added to the outline to fill in for other times when I don't have as many ideas.(less)

Elected by Rori Shay
"This is one of those books that makes you stay up late to finish. The strong women characters and the gender conflict of the main character really made this book stand out. Can't wait for the next installment!"
Suspected by Rori Shay
"Absolutely stellar follow up to her first book, Elected. I am so glad I had the opportunity to beta read the draft! It completely kept me on my toes the entire time. Cannot WAIT for it to come out in print in early 2015!"
