At seven, Natalie D. Richards wrote about Barbara Frances Bizzlefishes (who wouldn’t dare do the dishes) and won her first competition. Now she writes about awesome girls, broody boys, and all things dark and creepy. In 2012, Natalie was a double-finalist in RWA’s Golden Heart contest in the Young Adult category. She lives in Ohio (Go Bucks!) with her husband, kids, and a giant dust-mop who swears he’s the family dog.
