Biography

Erica O'Rourke


Erica O'Rourke has worked in a variety of jobs -- library cataloger, barista, Girl Friday, English teacher, and stay-at-home mom -- but she's always been a writer, which explains (partially) why her math grades were so abysmal.
 
Her debut novel, TORN, won the Romance Writers of America's 2010 Golden Heart Award for Best Young Adult Manuscript, and was the launch title for Kensington Books' KTeen imprint. The Torn Trilogy also includes TANGLED and BOUND (available now). Her latest series, DISSONANCE, is about a girl with the ability to walk between alternate realities, who falls for different versions of the same boy in every world she visits. A companion e-novella, HARMONIC, is also available. The sequel, RESONANCE, will be published July 22, 2015 by Simon and Schuster. 
 
When Erica is not writing, she's reading. And when she's not reading, she's probably watching Doctor Who, cooking, or spending time with her husband and three daughters just outside of Chicago.
