About the Author
MAZEY EDDINGS is a neurodiverse author, dentist, and (most importantly) stage mom to her cats, Yaya and Zadie. She can most often be found reading romance novels under her weighted blanket and asking her fiancé to bring her snacks. She's made it her personal mission in life to destigmatize mental health issues and write love stories for every brain. With roots in Ohio and Philadelphia, she now calls Asheville, North Carolina home. She is the author of A Brush with Love and Lizzie Blake's Best Mistake.

"Eddings' latest romance is evidence of the author's own blossoming, as she uses Opal's and Pepper's individual struggles and stark personality differences to explore important discussions about mental health and neurodivergence that don't feel out of place.. An endearing, emotional love story." -Kirkus, Starred review

"Eddings marries laugh out loud humor with sweet romance in this sexy standalone... Both strong-willed, neurodivergent, and bisexual, the heroines are sure to charm." -Publishers Weekly

"Eddings delivers another unique and refreshing romance... in her signature comical and charming style. A slow-burning yet spicy romance.. The beautiful rural setting and infusion of floral symbolism elevate Late Bloomer to another level, and readers who desire a low-stakes, low-angst read will enjoy cozying up with this book." -Booklist

"Eddings brings a light and optimistic touch to characters dealing with substance addiction, grief, and neurodivergence... Recommended for readers who enjoy contemporary queer romance, meet-cutes, and rural settings." -Library Journal

"Sapphic, neurodivergent women working on a flower farm and falling in love? Be still my cottagecore lesbian heart! Eddings always knows how to check all my boxes with her affirming romance novels, but Late Bloomer has my whole heart. This book bursts with Eddings' trademark compassion, humor, and beautifully flawed characters, all within a magnificent story about queer joy, queer love, and the power of queer community. As hopeful as the first bud of spring, as lovely as the lilacs in bloom, and as gay as lavender, this book is a must-read." -- Alison Cochrun, author of Kiss Her Once for Me

"Mazey Eddings's writing is authentic, emotional, and intensely romantic! To me, it's like a Taylor Swift song in book form." - New York Times bestselling author Ali Hazelwood
