mara 2Mara Fitzgerald writes YA fantasy about unlikable female characters who ruin everything. She is a biologist by day and spends entirely too much time looking at insects under a microscope. She was born near Disney World and now lives near Graceland, which is almost as good. Her debut YA fantasy, BEYOND THE RUBY VEIL, will release in 2020 from Disney Hyperion.

Her work is represented by Carrie Pestritto of Laura Dail Literary Agency.

She also contributes her unwanted opinions to a blog with her critique partners. The blog in question is called Writer’s Block Party and it’s changing the world, one post at a time. Find it here and rejoice.
