Whitney was born and raised in a Bible Belt town nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. As a curious girl dreaming of life beyond the white walls of her church, she began trading books with kids in her art class. Soon, she fell in love with a certain sparkly vampire who opened her eyes to the chaotic, beautiful world of fandom. She is a lover of all things weird, dark, and comedic with a focus on imperfect girls whose vulnerability is their strength. When she's not writing, she can be found wandering Dallas with her beautiful daughter (who is her forever muse).
