Aiden Thomas is a YA author with an MFA in Creative Writing, and “Lost in The Never Woods” is their debut novel. Originally from Oakland, California, Aiden now makes their home in Portland, OR. As a queer latinx, they advocate strongly for diverse representation in all media. Aiden’s special talents include: quoting The Office, Harry Potter trivia, Jenga, finishing sentences with “is my FAVORITE”, and killing spiders. Aiden is notorious for not being able to guess the endings of books and movies, and organizes their bookshelves by color. When Aiden’s not writing, they enjoy exploring nature with their dog, Ronan. Aiden's cat, Figaro, prefers to support their indoor hobbies, like reading and drinking too much coffee.
