Ava Reid was born in Manhattan and raised right across the Hudson River in Hoboken, but currently lives in Palo Alto, where the weather is too sunny and the people are too friendly. She has a degree in political science from Barnard College, focusing on religion and ethnonationalism. She has worked for a refugee resettlement organization, for a U.S. senator, and, most recently, for an AI robotics startup. Her debut novel, THE WOLF & THE WOODSMAN, will release in 2021 from Harper Voyager US and Del Rey UK. She is represented by Alexandra Machinist at ICM Partners.
For Pitch Wars 2019, Ava Reid is co-mentoring with Rachel Morris.
