Dante Medema is an author of books for young readers. She lives in Anchorage, Alaska with her husband, four daughters, and room full of alien memorabilia—and books, of course. When she’s not writing, she dabbles in baking, decorating, painting, and reading up on enneagram personality types or playing with her boston terrier. Her debut novel, THE TRUTH PROJECT, is out on October 13th with Harper Collins / Quill Tree Books—about a girl who finds out via an online ancestry kit that she is the product of an affair.
