Leah Thomas

Leah Thomas frequently loses battles of wits against her students and her stories. When she's not huddled in cafes, she's usually at home pricking her fingers in service of cosplay. Leah lives in San Diego, Calif., and is the author of "When Light Left Us," "Nowhere Near You" and the William C. Morris YA Debut Award finalist, "Because You'll Never Meet Me." Her new book is "Wild and Crooked."
