Nadège Richards is a young adult fantasy author, an award-winning book designer (Inkstain Design Studio), a fine art photographer (Vellum & Wing Photography), and a human being (in her spare time). She lives and dreams in the abstract and spends a majority of her life filling it with art. If she's not traveling, she's reading. If she's not reading, she's writing. And if she's not writing, she should be writing. As if juggling so many occupations isn't enough, she is also the co-founder of Imaginarium Book Festival.
She attended Temple University with the dream of becoming a neurosurgeon, but followed her love for art and graduated with her B.A. in Journalism, specializing in Graphic Design. Her friends and family are her biggest inspiration, as well as the occasional cup of tea. Although she was born in Brooklyn, New York, she's lived in sunny Pennsylvania for many years, where she currently obsesses over K-Pop, croissants, memes, and the color turquoise. Before becoming a writer, she was a blogger for a YA Fiction blog called My Home Away From Home.
Nadège's first name is pronounced NAH-DEZH. It's French, although she's never been to France. Her hobbies outside of her work-life include binge-watching Korean dramas, exploring bookstores, hiking, and collecting soy candles.
