PhotobucketRobin LaFevers was raised on a steady diet of fairy tales, Bulfinch’s mythology, and 19th century poetry. It is not surprising she grew up to be a hopeless romantic. She has also spent a large portion of her life being told she was making up things that weren’t there, which only proves she was destined to write fiction. She is the author of fourteen books for young readers, including the Theodosia series and the Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist series. Her most recent book, GRAVE MERCY, is a young adult romance about assassin nuns in medieval France. Her books have received numerous state awards and have sold in over nine countries. Though she has never trained as an assassin or joined a convent, she has been on a search for answers to life’s mysteries for as long as she can remember.

Robin also co-founded the popular Shrinking Violets blog, a marketing resource and support group for introverted authors.

She currently lives with her husband in Southern California. Follow her on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/RLLaFevers
