Francesca Flores is a YA fantasy author represented by Peter Knapp at Park Literary & Media. She is also a reader for FORESHADOW, an online serial YA anthology dedicated to emerging, diverse voices. Her favorite genres to read are fantasy, contemporary, and historical fiction, but she’ll read anything with characters who fight to rise above their circumstances and atmospheric settings that come to life. Her home is San Francisco, but she loves to travel. In her free time, she can be found dancing ballet and jazz, practicing trapeze, drinking a cup of green tea, or watching a new drama.
