Shanora Williams was born and raised in Matthews, North Carolina. She's the author of the New Adult FireNine series and the New York Times Bestselling New Adult novel, Hard to Resist.
When she's not writing, she's happily reading or watching cartoons like the big kid she is. She has a wonderful family that you will hear her brag and talk about all of the time. Whenever she just wants to get away from the words for a while, she'll spend some time with her loved ones, eat gummy bears, or drown in Coca-Cola and anything else caffeinated.
