About the Author
Johanna Parkhurst grew up on a small dairy farm in northern Vermont before relocating to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. She holds degrees from Albertus Magnus College and Teachers College, Columbia University, where she studied the teaching of English. She divides her time between teaching and writing, and she's published three novels for young adults in between obsessing over which lesson plan to use the next day.
Johanna loves traveling, hiking, skiing, and yelling at the TV during football and hockey season.
