Demetra Brodsky loves to write twisty thrillers about dark family secrets. She is an award-winning graphic designer and art director turned full-time author. A first-generation Greek American and native of Massachusetts with a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Demetra now lives in Southern California where she’s always exploring and researching, hunting for clues to things that might feed into her next book. Dive Smack, her debut novel, was a 2018 Junior Library Guild Selection and (ALAN) pick. Her second novel, Last Girls, is out now from Tor Teen/Macmillan.
