Chrissy Favreau is a crafter, coffee-brewer, and writer of witty young adult fiction. In the not-so-distant past, she's worked with tigers, mountain lions, and a despicable monkey named Mario. She owes her life to a Siberian tiger named Reba, who could have killed her, but didn't. That's why you're reading this today.
Chock-full of hot guys, Favreau's YA books are meant for an older teen audience; but they're so relatable that they can be--and often are--enjoyed by adults, too.
