Amelia Gray grew up in Tucson, Arizona. She is the author of two previous books, both acclaimed by critics, AM/PM (2009), and Museum of the Weird (2010), which was awarded the Ronald Sukenick/American Book Review Innovative Fiction Prize. Gray has built up a substantial public following by financing her tour for AM/PM through Kickstarter, renting a van and traveling around the country to read in bars and indie bookstores. She lives in Los Angeles. THREATS is her first novel.
