Rina Onur grew up in Istanbul, Turkey, and collaborated with Lauren Kunze on the storylines for The Ivy. Rina and Lauren were best friends and roommates for four years at Harvard and they started working on The Ivy during their junior year.
After majoring in Economics at Harvard, Rina has worked at investment banks and in private equity management in London and Istanbul, where she comes up with story ideas when the boss isn't looking.
Rina and Lauren are currently working on the second book in The Ivy series, with two more books to follow. They refuse to say how much of it is true.
