LARA HUES has been writing young adult fiction for over a decade.

Inspired by the dozens of places she has been privileged to call home and her incredibly vivid dreams and relentless imagination, she mingles fantasy with the constant string of nearly-fictitious events of life. 

She is happily married to a Foreign Area Officer for the United States Army and together, with their two daughters, they move around the world. Lara has lived in Utah, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Idaho, Arizona, Kentucky, Texas, California, and Brasilia, Brazil; in that order. She speaks French, Spanish, and Portuguese. 

Lara writes the sort of books she likes to read; young adult fiction in everything from science fiction to dystopian to fairy-tale retellings. She delivers strong, smart, and audaciously honest characters who have no qualms about making themselves vulnerable to readers. 

Her interest in cultures, people, and languages guided her to BYU-Hawaii, where she majored in Cultural Anthropology and earned a TESOL certificate. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing from National University

Lara loves to hear from readers and writers.
