Amelia Diane Coombs writes books for young adults. Back in the day, she majored in English and went on to receive her MFA in Creative Writing. Now Amelia writes unlikable female protagonists, positive mental health representation, and swoony romances with soft boys. She’s a Northern California transplant living in Seattle, Washington, with her fiancé and their Siberian cat.
KEEP MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO is her debut novel. You can learn more at ameliadianecoombs.com or follow her on Twitter @sincerelyamelia.
