Veronica Rossi was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Growing up, she lived in several countries and cities around the world, finally settling in Northern California with her husband and two sons. She completed undergraduate studies at UCLA and then went on to study fine art at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.

When not writing or painting, she chases after her boys, who make her laugh every day, and who teach her about love that's a million-gazillion times bigger than the ocean.

Author's Comment:

What fictional character from another book would your main characters chose as a best friend and why?

Oh, this is a fun question. I have two main characters, Peregrine and Aria. For Perry, Gale from The Hunger Games. I was going to try to reach a little further in the memory bank for this, but I suppose the fact that it popped right into my head means something. I think those two are cut from the same cloth. I could definitely imagine them hanging out. Not saying much to one another, but that’s why they’d get along so well. For Aria, it would probably be Lyra, from His Dark Materials, despite their age difference. Aria would love Lyra’s spunk and intelligence, and especially her wild-child side.
