Ava Mallory was born to be a writer. As a child, she wrote on walls, windows, floors, her siblings, and any surface that sat still too long.

Her love of the written word made up for her penchant for silence. That was difficult to find in the home she shared with five siblings, two (dare she say) loud parents, grandparents, and several dozen aunts, uncles, cousins, and long-time family friends who lived nearby.

Growing up, Ava told everyone she would be famous. Of course, with all the noise, no one ever heard her, but that didn't stop her.

After going off to university, marrying her then-Prince Charming, and having four children, her life went kaput, so she did what any irrational Spanish woman would do, she took it up a notch and sold her soul to the indie publishing world.

When she's not writing, you can bet she's busy enjoying one or all of her many hobbies. They include: chauffering children to & fro, cooking for said children, finding all "lost" items for the children, recounting the days of her youth when she would walk five miles through the snow, up a hill backwards to go to school, running (after children or away from them), binge-watching true crime documentaries, streaming her favorite shows, scrolling through her social media feeds, or desperately looking for a quiet place in her house where she can take a nap.

6 Fun Facts About Ava
