Brittany J. Thurman is an author from Louisville, Kentucky. Growing up, she spent her weekends with her great-grandparents in a much smaller country town. There, she eavesdropped on conversations and stories, some of which have found their way in what she writes today. A traveler since before she could walk, she is a graduate of Kingston University, London, England, where she studied Theatre. Realizing her passion and talent is in the written art, Brittany attended Carnegie Mellon University, where she received a Master of Fine Art in Dramatic Writing. Brittany writes picture books, middle grade, and young adult, and currently resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she conducts story times for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. In her spare time, she can be found checking out too many books from the library, reading as many books as humanly possible, or biking along some city’s river front trail.
