Bio: Ryan Graudin was born and raised by the sea in Charleston, South Carolina. She grew up on a steady diet of fairytales, salt-marshes, music and brothers who would reenact Redwall battles with her in the backyard. She went to an artsy sort of high school that allowed cello recitals in the hallways and it was there that she decided writing was what she wanted to do. She went to the College of Charleston and graduated in 2009 with a degree in Creative Writing. She met the love of her life and got married at 21. They started traveling the world together and never really stopped. They’ve taught English in South Korea, farmed in New Zealand, hiked through Peru, spied on lions in Kenya. Country number 20 is next on the docket. She still lives close to the sea, with her husband and her wolf-dog. Sometimes she gets bored and colors her hair or pierces her nose.
