Liz McMullen has had a passion for history and world religions since she was a little girl looking up at her Dad as he told her stories. She fed her addiction to politics, history, mythology, and religion while at Mount Holyoke College and during her junior year abroad at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. She went backpacking around Europe, visiting all the places she had been reading about. Although her title as the Traveling Where’s Waldo of the family has been retired, her wanderlust lives on in her writing. Her debut novel, If I Die Before I Wake, was a Rainbow Award Finalist. Finding Home, the first novel in the Finding Home series, won a Goldie for Young Adult Fiction.
