Tamora Pierce


Tamora Pierce began her writing career at a New York literary agency, though she didn’t stay long.  Having learned the publishing ropes from the inside she wrote a fantasy novel with a young female protagonist—not something often found in early 1980’s.  In 1983 her first novel, Allanna: The First Adventure, was published, and since 1992 she has been making her living exclusively as a novelist. She has published over 15 novels and is a much beloved inventor of that now very popular genre: YA Fantasy.
