Growing up in the DC area, Olivia devoured books and hid in empty classrooms during school to finish them. Her debut novel, Twin Flames, is the Tu Books 2018 New Visions Award Winner, with forthcoming novels from Penguin Random House, Putnam Books for Young Readers. In her spare time Olivia enjoys binging music videos on YouTube, laughing so hard she can’t breathe, and hitting 10,000 steps on her FitBit. She currently lives in Denver, Colorado, with a husband she met in high school and a tortoiseshell cat that has opinions about everything.
