About the Author


Olivia Simms is a grade 8 student from Ottawa, Ontario. Born in Nagoya, Japan, Olivia has enjoyed both reading and writing for as long as she can remember. She draws inspiration from the works of talented authors such as Rainbow Rowell and John Green, and considers Lin Manuel-Miranda her personal hero. Olivia’s favourite subjects in school are English, science, and music. Although she defaults to writing YA contemporary fiction, Olivia reads a wide spectrum of genres, including non-fiction and scripts for stage plays, in hopes of broadening her skill set as a writer. In the future, Olivia hopes to continue refining her technique in writing so she can share her ideas and stories with kids and adults alike.
