M. M. Cox is a journalist and professional blogger who just recently published the Teen Mobster Series with Bluewood Publishing. If you’ve ever wanted to try laughing while biting your fingernails, you should read her books. Cox has worked in a variety of communication-related jobs, including PR for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (but did not, in fact, have to don a hazmat suit at any time). She has lived in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Colorado Springs, Boston, and Washington D.C. and enjoys running races in different cities. If you ask her why she writes, she’ll tell you that she attended her first writer’s conference as a teenager and dreamed of sharing her own stories ever since. She recently gained literary representation with agent Kimiko Nakamura of Dee Mura Literary.
Cox currently resides in Oklahoma City with her husband and children. Yes, she’s had to crouch down in a storm shelter during a tornado. No, she hasn’t seen a witch and her flying monkeys. Apparently those are only in Kansas. But there’s a first time for everything…
