About the Author
Salla Simukka is the author of the internationally bestselling trilogy As Red as Blood, As White as Snow, and As Black as Ebony for young adults, which has sold more than one million copies worldwide. Sisterland is her first middle-grade title in the United States and has been sold in nine additional territories. It was inspired by the fairy tales Salla grew up with. She always wanted to find a portal to a magical world and finally decided to write one for herself--and other readers. Salla has also written several novels and a collection of short stories, translated adult fiction, children's books, and plays, and worked as a TV screenwriter. She lives in Tampere, Finland.
