Beth Hautala is a former associate magazine editor, and copy writer. She now owns and operates Red House Media, an advertising agency, with her husband. They live in Minnesota with their four children. WAITING FOR UNICORNS, out from Philomel/Penguin, is Beth's first novel. 

(And as for the less official stuff, honestly, I just love writing—getting wrapped and tangled up in beautiful words. There is nothing quite like the high of losing yourself in a good story, whether you are reading it or writing it).
