Andrea Contos is a writer of young adult mysteries and thrillers, and her debut novel, THROWAWAY GIRLS, releases spring 2020 from KCP Loft.

Andrea is a Pitch Wars 2017 mentee, a 2018 mentor (obviously) and a member of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

She grew up in Detroit, and thanks to the tours given by her policeman father, she can tell you exactly where the morgue is. She currently lives outside the city with her tiny-feminist daughters, her husband, and their very fluffy cat.

Andrea is represented by Sarah Davies of The Greenhouse Literary Agency.

For Pitch Wars 2018, Andrea Contos is co-mentoring with Kay McCray.
