About the Author

Ava Conway

At fourteen, Ava Conway snuck her first romance novel into bed and read it by flashlight. There she met her first “book boyfriend” and has been hooked on reading ever since. When she’s not writing, she’s stumbling through her Zumba class, obsessing over the latest P!nk song, or feeding her addiction to reality television. She lives in central Massachusetts.
