Before Jaime Roscoe was a writer, she was a ferocious reader who risked injury by moving through life with her nose stuck in a book. She grew up in New England, where Boston sports teams are worshipped and Dunkin Donuts coffee is the nectar of the Gods. For a good part of her adulthood, she’s worked as a nonprofit fundraiser, raising money for everything from Shakespeare in the park to scholarships for first-generation college students to disability rights and everything in between. Jaime Roscoe writes young adult novels that explore young people’s ability to overcome hardship, discover their gifts, and change the world. She now lives in the mountains of Western North Carolina with her husband, daughters, dogs, a cat, and two rabbits named after Tom and Gisele Brady.
