Zuri Day has been enthralled with the wonder of words since mouthing her first one—Tuffy, the name of the family dog—at less than a year old. When not penning novels, she’s a voracious reader and world traveler, always ready to search out the next exciting locale for a juicy story plot. When she comes home, it’s to Los Angeles, CA, where she enjoys theatre, sports, working out, and whipping up vegetarian meals for her family and friends.
