N.M. Howell is a three-time USA Today bestselling author, entrepreneur, and all-around nerd from the West Coast of Canada. She has an obsession with coffee, spicy food, and the rain, and she absolutely hates sleeves. (Seriously, they're like little fabric prisons!) When not locked away in her writing cave, she spends her time either wandering the world or fighting with her micro-wolf pup over who gets the best spot on the couch. Hint: the dog wins.
