Penne Mayer is an author of young adult fiction. Her work is inspired by themes found in classic Gothic novels as well as stories that bring her back to those nostalgic teenage years when everything mattered. To Penne, a good book is one that incites the powerful emotions we experience so infrequently in real life, the kind that comes from moments we sometimes cherish, sometimes hate, but never forget.
Penne does her best plotting while hiking through the redwoods on a warm day. She has spent most of her life in northern California but has an on-going love affair with New England. She has never met a lobster she didn’t want to eat.
