ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jennifer Lynn Alvarez
Jennifer Lynn Alvarez received her B.A. in English from the University of California at Berkeley. In addition to literature, she studied philosophy and sociology. She's fascinated by underdogs and power dynamics between groups of people.
Jennifer is the author of two middle grade book series, each published by HarperCollins Children's Books: THE GUARDIAN HERD (a quartet) and RIDERS OF THE REALM (a trilogy). Before this, she self-published a middle grade fantasy called THE PET WASHER.
Jennifer also writes for adults and teens and has several projects underway. When she's not writing, you'll find her galloping her little black mare through the foothills of Sonoma County or teaching free creative writing workshops to kids and adults at various branches of our local library system.
Jennifer is the Sonoma County Co-Coordinator for the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), and the Healdsburg Literary Guild selected Jennifer as their 2019/2020 Literary Laureate for her work in building literacy in her community. It is an honor she holds dear. Jennifer lives in Northern California with her husband, three children, and more than her fair share of pets!
