One need only a moment with Dede Nesbitt to know she’s all about BIG: big hair, big personality, big books with big stakes…

Born in Nigeria and raised in a suburb of Atlanta, Ga, as a child, if she wasn’t writing fan fiction or buried in a book, she was lost amongst the stacks of the local library. It was a nice distraction from her other love – life as a band nerd (clarinets rule!). A Georgia girl to her core, she now spends her days writing Southern-tinged, YA Fantasy featuring diverse characters with big problems.

You can find her reveling in her favorite fandoms (Star Wars and ALL things Marvel) and sharing the antics of her husband and two small children – the big haired Nesbabies – on most social media networks.
