Maura Ellen Stokes holds an MFA in writing for children and young adults from Vermont College. A lifelong athlete who coached girls’ soccer, she often incorporates sports into her fiction. When she’s not writing, she works as a biostatistician. A New England native, she has lived in the Chapel Hill, North Carolina, area for many years but still thinks that real summer mornings are cool enough for sweatshirts.
Her book FADEAWAY is forthcoming from Yellow Jacket/Bonnier Publishing USA.
