Becoming a writer wasn't at the top of Andrea Pearson's priority list when she was growing up. Maybe an artist, or a famous musician, or even a surgeon were in the mix. But, while serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Andrea felt a passion for the written word, and afterward, returned home to begin a writing career.
A graduate of Brigham Young University, Andrea's first book, The Key of Kilenya was published in June 2011, and was quickly followed by other books in her Kilenya series. A prolific writer, Andrea has won awards for her writing, and claims "Writing is the chocolate of my life - it is, in fact, the only thing I ever crave."
She has served as a writer for MormonArtist, and is an editor for Gather.com's writing group.
Even though she became a writer rather than a renowned musician, Andrea still plays and teaches a variety of instruments, including the piano and viola, plus, she still enjoys painting. She's happiest in the company of her husband, family and friends.
