About | Norma Hinkens

 

normaface125

NYT and USA Today bestselling author, Norma Hinkens grew up among rich storytelling traditions in her native Ireland, land of make-believe and the original little green man. A globetrotter at heart, she settled in California and began scribbling down the yarns that have been brewing in her head for years.

In her spare time she retreats to rural Idaho to hike, bike and boat, but mostly to eavesdrop on mountain men and prepare for the apocalypse. She is the author of The Undergrounders Series, an award-winning sci-fi dystopian thriller trilogy, The Expulsion Project, a science fiction trilogy, and The Keeper Chronicles, epic fantasy with dragons! In addition, she writes fast-paced psychological and domestic thrillers. If you like gripping tales, gritty heroines, and twists you won’t see coming, then you’ll love her turbo-paced thrill-rides!
