Bio

Cynthia Hand is the author of the debut novel Unearthly and its follow-up, Hallowed. The two books tell the story of Clare Gardner, a young woman who discovers that the blood of angels flows in her veins.

In Unearthly, with the revelation of her divine ancestry, Clare is forced to come to terms with both the fact that she isn't human and her preordained purpose on the earth. Hallowed finds Clare dealing with the aftermath of the first novel and her increasingly complicated feelings for two male characters.

Born in Idaho, Hand now lives in Southern California with her husband and two small children and teaches creative writing at Pepperdine University. She holds graduate degrees from Boise State and the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.

In middle and high school, she wrote fan fiction with her friends. They each would create new characters in their favorite science fiction and fantasy worlds. She entered college with the intention of becoming a lawyer, but decided to become a writer instead.
