Lane Clarke grew up in Richmond, Virginia, where she hung out with her grandma at IHOP every Tuesday night and attended $3 movie nights at the Byrd Theater. Lane has been in love with books since the age of two. Her stories feature Black, big-hearted teenagers with self-doubts and big dreams, who—with a little laughter and good friends—can accomplish anything. She eats dessert before dinner and can usually be found rewatching A Different World and Ted Lasso. She currently lives in Northern Virginia with her partner and two fur babies (Pickles and Pax). She works as an attorney in Washington, D.C.
