Andrea Contos is a writer of young adult mysteries and thrillers. After a childhood spent hiding beneath the covers to read books by flashlight, she obtained a degree in business, where the only writing involved legal responses and termination letters. She happily traded those for works of fiction, and she still loses far too much sleep creating and enjoying a good book.
Her debut, THROWAWAY GIRLS, will be published with KCP Loft in spring of 2020.
Andrea is a Pitch Wars 2018 Mentor, a 2017 Mentee, and a member of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
She grew up in Detroit, and thanks to the tours given by her policeman father, she can tell you exactly where the morgue is. She currently lives outside the city with her tiny-feminist daughters, her husband, and their very fluffy cat.
Andrea is represented by Sarah Davies of The Greenhouse Literary Agency.
