Robin Herrera is an aspiring Cat Lady living in Portland, OR. Her love for cats (and writing) began in her hometown of Eureka, CA, where she often sets her novels. She studied English (and read lots and lots of children’s and YA books) at Mills College, and got her MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from the Vermont College of Fine Arts soon after. She now works as an Admin Assistant at Oni Press, where she is surrounded by awesome comics all day long. Her first book, a middle grade novel, HOPE IS A FERRIS WHEEL, was published in 2015.
