Brandon Williams lives in Portland, OR, but was born and raised across the river in Vancouver, WA. After attending Western Washington University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Physics (minors in astronomy and mathematics) as well as a Master in Teaching, he began teaching. Although he loves working with teenagers, he found that teaching just wasn't the venue best suited to him. Following his time teaching, he began fully pursuing his lifelong dream of being a writer, and has been fully enmeshed in the process every since. Today he balances his time as a local children's bookseller and writer of fiction. Teenage Rewrite is his first young-adult novel.
