AMALIE HOWARD grew up on a small Caribbean island where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or being a tomboy running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees and dreaming of adventure. 22 countries, surfing with sharks and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts.
She is the award-winning IndieNext author of Alpha Goddess, The Aquarathi series, The Riven Chronicles series, and the Cruentus Curse series. Her novels have been critically acclaimed by Kirkus, PW, VOYA, and
Booklist, and her debut novel, Bloodspell, was a #1 Amazon bestseller and a Seventeen Magazine Summer Read. She currently resides in Colorado with her husband and three children. Visit her at www.amaliehoward.com.
