Andrea Contos is a writer of young adult mysteries and thrillers. She has two upcoming books with Scholastic: OUT OF THE FIRE in fall of 2021, and a yet untitled book in fall of 2022. Her debut novel, THROWAWAY GIRLS, releases September 1, 2020.
Andrea is a Pitch Wars 2017 mentee, a 2018, 2019, and 2020 mentor. She is a member and marketing lead for the Class of 2K20 Books, and a member of the 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 partner, and their very fluffy dog.
