GABRIELLE KIROUAC BYRNE lives in the rainy wilds of the Pacific Northwest, where she writes fantasy for kids of all ages. Gabby studied opera in Philadelphia, medieval studies in New York, literature in Scotland, and marine biology in the Pacific Northwest, but stories are the common thread that tie all her interests together. When she’s not writing, you can find her fishing spineless zooplankton out of the sea with her family.
In Gabby’s debut MG fantasy, RISE OF THE DRAGON MOON, Toli Strongarm, Princess of Ire, must face her guilt over her father’s death in order to save her mother, and her ice locked queendom, from the dragons who killed him. Coming August 6th, 2019 from Imprint/Macmillan.
For Pitch Wars 2019, Gabrielle Byrne is co-mentoring with Julia Nobel.
