AMALIE HOWARD grew up on a small Caribbean island, where she spent her childhood burying her nose in a book or running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees, and dreaming of adventure. She has switched in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines after traveling to 22 countries, surfing with sharks, and getting multiple tattoos. She is undecided about which requires greater courage. Alpha Goddess, The Aquarathi series (Waterfell and Oceanborn), The Riven Chronicles series (The Nearly Girl and The Fallen Prince), and the Cruentus Curse series (Bloodspell and Bloodcraft) are among her award-winning IndieNext works. Kirkus, PW, VOYA, and Booklist have all praised her work, and her debut novel, Bloodspell, was a #1 Amazon bestseller and a Seventeen Magazine Summer Read.
With her husband and three children, she currently resides in Colorado. Her website is www.amaliehoward.com.
