about

¡Bienvenidos! I’m Anna-Marie. I’m a Mexican-American author represented by the fabulous Taylor Martindale of Full Circle Literary. My debut novel, THE WEIGHT OF FEATHERS, a 2016 William C. Morris YA Debut Award Finalist, and my latest, WHEN THE MOON WAS OURS, which was longlisted for the National Book Award in Young People's Literature, are out now from Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin's Press. My third novel, WILD BEAUTY, will be released on October 3, 2017 from Feiwel & Friends/Macmillan.

Two of my historical short stories are forthcoming in the anthologies ALL OUT (Harlequin Teen, 2018) & THE RADICAL ELEMENT (Candlewick Press, 2018). My shorter work has previously been featured in The Portland Review, CRATE Literary Magazine’s “cratelit,” Camera Obscura’s Bridge the Gap Gallery, and by the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West. I was a 2011 Lambda Literary Fellow in Fiction (you can find my reading here). I live in Northern California with a boy from the other side of the Rockies.
