Marla Bowie writes books about teens. Her ten years' experience in Child Protective Services has given Marla a deep understanding of how amazing, inspiring, and resilient children and teens are.

When not writing, Marla enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, doing all things artistic, and traveling.
