Natalie Whipple grew up in the Bay Area and relocated to Utah for high school, which was quite the culture shock for her anime-loving teen self. But the Rocky Mountains eventually won her over, and she stuck around to earn her degree in English linguistics at BYU, with a minor in editing. Natalie still lives in Utah with her husband and three kids. She is the author of the Transparent series, House of Ivy & Sorrow, the I’m a Ninja series, Fish Out of Water, Sidekick, My Little Brony (under K.M. Hayes), and The Vengeance Code (coming Spring 2018 under Nat McKenzie). In addition to that, she was on the writing team for the cRPG Torment: Tides of Numenera, out now from InXile.
