M.M. Anderson has always had an active imagination and a mischievously macabre sense of humor. As a child she enjoyed scaring her parents, brother, cousins, and friends with creepy stories and Halloweenish pranks. All the while secretly suspecting that as an infant she'd been separated from her real relatives: the Addams Family.
But there's more to Ms. Anderson than Wednesday wanna-be. She's been a darn good competitive runner, traveled near and far, sold real estate in Manhattan, was an educator at a world famous California zoo, taught elementary, middle school, and college, worked in publishing, advertising, rode the dot.com wave, and she once earned money as an assistant beautician for a mortician.
Although this is her first YA novel, M.M. Anderson has published nonfiction works, commercial ads, and also written music, penned the lyrics in TURNAROUND for Signal 7. Besides working her craft, she enjoys spending time with her handsome hubby, two wonderful children, six cats, two dogs, two fish, two turtles, a horse, and a gaggle of great gal pals.
