Andie Newton is an American writer living in Washington State with her husband and two boys. She writes female-driven historical fiction set in World War Two. The Girl I Left Behind was her debut novel and The Girl From Vichy is a USA Today bestseller. She would love to say she spends her free time gardening and cooking, but she's killed everything she's ever planted and set off more fire alarms than she cares to admit. Andie does, however, love spending time with her family, ultra trail running, and drinking copious amounts of coffee.
