Shea Olsen lives and writes in a small mountain town in Oregon. She works as a producer for Rage Productions, a film production company, and shares a home with her husband, a dog named Diesel, and two cats. You will often find her reading or writing her next novel beside the lake where she and her husband are restoring a tiny 400 sq. ft. cabin in the Cascade Mountains. She is represented by Jessica Regel at Foundry.
Shea’s debut novel, FLOWER (Harlequin Teen, Winter 2016) is a Young Adult romance.
When Charlotte was twelve, she promised her grandmother she’d swear off boys until after college—she wouldn’t repeat the same mistakes as her mother and sister. Then, at eighteen, Tate Collins—pop star and heartthrob—walks into the flower shop where she works after school. And she is thrust into a romance and a Hollywood life she never imagined.
