Laura Sebastian

Biography

Laura Sebastian

Laura Sebastian was born and raised in South Florida (the Redlands and Key Largo) and has always loved telling stories --- many apologies to her little brother who often got in trouble because of them. No copies of her first book, a Cinderella retelling about angels circa 2nd grade, remain. Thankfully.

After getting her BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design, she moved to New York City thinking that she would stay for a couple of years before going somewhere better suited for a small-town, sun-loving girl. Five years later, she’s still here and madly in love with it.

When Laura isn’t writing, she’s probably reading, baking cookies or cupcakes, buying more clothes than her overstuffed closet can fit, or forcing her lazy dog Neville to take a walk.

Her debut ASH PRINCESS, the start of a YA fantasy trilogy, will be out April  24th, 2018 from Delacorte (Random House).

Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Fire Queen, was murdered. The Kaiser took Theodosia's family, her land and her name, crowning Theo as Ash Princess --- a title of shame in her new life as a prisoner. For 10 years Theo has endured the relentless abuse and ridicule of the Kaiser. Then, one night, the Kaiser forces her to do the unthinkable. With blood on her hands and all hope of reclaiming her throne lost, she realizes that surviving is no longer enough. But she does have a weapon: her mind is sharper than any sword.
