Cara Peregrino was raised in a house full of books and it has never occurred to her not to write. Her education came from reading novels tucked inside her textbooks and scribbling notes in the back of her jotter when she should have been paying more attention to French infinitives and quadratic equations.

She grew up exploring the wilds of her native Scotland—a place that certainly makes it easy to believe in magic. Having never lost her sense of curiosity or her delight in middle-grade stories, she loves to write about the wonder we can find in the world around us.
