About Me

Hi there!

I'm Rie (she/her) and I write books for kids and tweens (and anyone else who wants to read them). STEM, road trips, and sparkly hearing aids are a few of my favorite things. I'm also a certified audiologist, and am learning ASL.

I live in the Silicon Valley with my husband, two kids, and a cat who owns the neighborhood. Learn more about me HERE.

Proudly represented by Carrie Pestritto of Laura Dail Literary Agency.

Thanks for stopping by!
