Amelia Atwater-Rhodes is the author of seventeen young adult sci-fi/urban-fantasy novels, three short stories, and an adult gay fantasy-romance trilogy. In addition to writing, she has a full-time job teaching English to high school seniors in a special education school, and is the devoted mother of an energetic toddler.
Amelia started writing novels when she was in fifth grade and published her first as a freshman in high school. As she tells her students, she knows every excuse to get out of doing homework because she got away with them all. These days she works a bit harder to balance her responsibilities, which means she is sometimes a terrible web-mistress, but she still loves to write and continues to publish regularly.
