Sean Easley is the author of the middle grade fantasy adventure series THE HOTEL BETWEEN—including his most recent book, THE KEY OF LOST THINGS (Sept. 2019)—from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. He’s worked with kids and teens for well over a decade, listening to their stories, grabbing a Masters degree in education along the way. Now he’s a full-time writer living with his wife and son in Texas, where he stubbornly refuses to wear cowboy boots. Visit him at seaneasley.com and on Twitter and Instagram @AuthorEasley.
