Emily Suvada was born and raised in Australia, where she went on to earn a degree in mathematics. She previously worked as a data scientist, and still spends hours writing algorithms to perform tasks which would only take her minutes to complete on her own. When not writing, she can be found hiking, cycling, and conducting chemistry experiments in her kitchen. The third book in her This Mortal Coil series, This Vicious Cure, was released in winter 2020. She currently lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and son.
