About R.L. Saunders

Several years ago, I quit my job teaching English at a university in the Midwest, sold my house and all my stuff, and moved to the island of Key West, Florida. It had been a secret dream of mine since I was a kid spending lots of time on the island to visit my dad (also a misfit, also thought he could run away from real life, also didn’t care when he learned real life follows us everywhere).

I spent a couple of years teaching, then had a boat load of fun as associate editor, advocacy journalist, and columnist for one of the island’s newspapers. Now I write middle grade and YA fiction, mostly, and travel between Key West and a cozy cabin in the woods in Michigan’s pinky finger.

I have a whole bunch of interesting kids, one interesting husband, and zero interesting pets since the devastating death of Hamster Gloria Steinem.
