Rebecca Ansari lives in a very loud house in Minneapolis with her husband, their four boys, two huge dogs and one fluffy kitty. After twelve years as an ER doctor, she shelved her scrubs to write magical and mysterious worlds for middle grade readers. She is drawn to any story that evokes, “Please, mom! Just one more chapter!” and she strives to craft the same. She was the winner of the Minnesota SCBWI Mentorship for 2015. When she isn’t writing, you can find her joyously mountain biking, begrudgingly running, or escaping “up north” with family, friends and a stack of go.
