Brenna Yovanoff was raised in a barn, a tent, and a tepee, and was homeschooled until high school. She spent her formative years in Arkansas, in a town heavily populated by snakes, where turkeys would sometimes drop out of the sky, before moving to Colorado when she was five. Her short fiction has appeared in Chiaroscuro and Strange Horizons. She holds an MFA in fiction from Colorado State University and is the New York Times bestselling author of The Replacement and The Space Between. She currently lives in Denver with her husband.
