Annaliese (pronounced AN nuh LEE zuh) Lemmon graduated from BYU with a degree in computer science. She lives with her equally nerdy husband and three children in Seattle, where she tries to write amid the noise. When not writing, she enjoys cooking and playing board games. Her favorite authors include Brandon Sanderson and Shannon Hale.
When she says she wants to write something different, she wants to write plots with surprising twists and characters that are not often featured in fantasy.
