Jennifer A. Nielsen

Nielsen was born and raised in northern Utah and completed her first full manuscript at the age of 11. However, it was abandoned after being turned down by a locksmith for information due to her age. She published Elliot and the Goblin War, the first Underworld Chronicles book, in 2010 and has continued publishing novels since. In 2013, she won the Whitney Award for Best Middle Grade Novel for The False Prince, the first novel in the Ascendance Trilogy, and the next year she won again in the same category for The Runaway King, its sequel. The paperback reprint of The False Prince put her on the New York Times Bestseller List in March 2013.
