Laura Brooke Robson was raised in Oregon, where she developed a love of stormy oceans, the NYT Crossword app, and coffee. She writes moody YA fantasy and reads everything she can. When she’s not writing, she enjoys running through the mountains and throwing darts at paint balloons. A former literary agency intern and a recent graduate Stanford University’s English and Creative Writing program, she now lives in Berkeley. She is represented by Danielle Burby at Nelson Literary Agency. Her debut novel, a story about aerialists, sinking cities, and girls who kiss, will be published with Kathy Dawson Books in the spring of 2020.
