About the Author

R.J. Vickers is the bestselling author of the Underground Academy young adult fantasy series, the Forbidden Queen epic fantasy series, and several other standalone fantasy novels set in the world of the Kinship Thrones. 

Originally from Colorado, Vickers now lives in New Zealand with her husband, where she enjoys hiking to backcountry huts, writing at cafes, crocheting blankets and amigurumi, and baking delicious treats. 

She is also an avid traveler, and spent most of 2019 exploring southern Africa and eastern Asia before continuing to Europe for the first half of 2020. 

She loves harvesting landscapes and cultural ephemera from around the globe to enrich her fantasy world--New Zealand, Finland, Alaska, Namibia, Hawaii, Ireland, and South Korea all make cameos in her imaginary lands.
