Maggie Harcourt was born and raised in Wales, and now lives near the border with her family. She grew up telling stories – and while she’s never quite kicked the habit, this is her first novel. THE LAST SUMMER OF US is moving contemporary YA, about a 16-year-old girl the summer after her mother dies. Usborne pre-empted rights and will publish in spring 2015 as their lead YA title.

Maggie Harcourt is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
