Emily K. Thiede writes speculative fiction about characters who flirt with their enemies and find humor even in the darkest situations. An alumna of both the PitchWars and the Author Mentor Match programs, Emily teaches aspiring writers and hosts monthly social events through a local writing nonprofit, and she is an active member of the YA community. When she isn’t writing, she fosters kittens with an animal rescue organization and spends way too much time on twitter. Her debut YA Fantasy, THE LAST FINESTRA, is scheduled to launch in 2022 and is the first of a planned duology from Wednesday Books/MacMillan.
