Vanessa L. Torres is an author of books for young readers. She loves to read anything with a vivid setting, but has a special place in her heart for urban tales. She was born and raised in Minneapolis, and now lives in Olympia Washington with her husband and daughter. When she's not writing, she balances her time between anything outdoors and her other job as a firefighter/paramedic. And when the snow hits, you might catch a glimpse of her ski-patrolling on the mountain.
