As a freshman at the University of Colorado, N.K. Traver decided to pursue Information Technology because classmates said "no one could make a living" with an English degree. It wasn’t too many years later she realized it didn’t matter what the job paid—nothing would ever be as fulfilling as writing. Programmer by day, writer by night, it was only a matter of time before the two overlapped. Her debut, DUPLICITY, a cyberthriller pitched as BREAKING BAD meets THE MATRIX for teens, released from Thomas Dunne Books on 3/17/15.
N.K. is a Pitch Wars mentor and has done over 140 critiques for fellow writers. She is represented by Brianne Johnson of Writers House.
