Shaunta Grimes loves books. They are the holders of her favorite thing in the whole world: stories. Her second favorite thing is a good pillow fort. When she was a kid, she loved to make a fort, where she would hide from her eight little brothers and sisters and read books. Now she loves writing them. She is, in fact, writing one right this minute. Possibly in a pillow fort.
Shaunta is the author of Viral Nation, Rebel Nation, and The Astonishing Maybe. Her third favorite thing is her backyard garden. Its name is Hyperbole Microfarm.
