Brooke Davis is the author of WHEN WE COME HOME (Bloomsbury Children’s, spring 2021), and she never quite knows what to say when people ask her where she’s from. An unruly child in suburban Virginia and a surly teenager in rural Ohio, she’s now a hopelessly book-obsessed adult in small-town Indiana. She loves stories of all kinds, from plays, to ballets, to TV shows, to memories rehashed over the dinner table. When she’s not writing, she can usually be found annoying her cats, Merlin and Octavia, haunting bookstores, or shouting Jeopardy! answers at the TV.
