Dusti Bowling grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona, where, as her family will tell you, she always had her nose in a book. But it wasn’t until after starting down a couple of different career paths that Dusti realized her true passion was writing. She currently lives in New River, Arizona with her husband, three daughters, a dozen tarantulas, a gopher snake named Burrito, and a cockatiel named Cilantro.
