Sheena Boekweg is the author of THE WIRE CROWN (Winter 2020, FEIWEL AND FRIENDS), a Pitch Wars class 15 alum, former slush editor, book blogger, and theatre nerd who has seen every Marvel movie in the last ten years and has strong opinions about Star Wars. She’s half April Ludgate, half Leslie Knope, and while some women contain multitudes, she simply contains the cast of Parks and Rec. She lives in Utah with her husband, (who is somehow half Ben Wyatt, half Andy Dwyer) three children (not triplets), and the world’s most spoiled puppy (four legs). Sheena is represented by the mighty Jessica Sinsheimer of Sarah Jane Freymann Literary.
