Nedda Lewers (neddalewers.com) is an Egyptian American author and former teacher. She writes books that take children on fun adventures and feature characters who are trying to make sense of the big, complicated world and their place in it. Even though it wasn’t easy growing up with one foot in America and the other in Egypt, Nedda cherishes how that experience has given her a rich and expansive perspective from which she draws to write her stories. Born and raised in Queens, New York, she currently lives in Manhattan Beach, California, with her husband, two daughters, and two dogs. Her debut novel, Daughters of the Lamp, is available now from G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers. It has been chosen as an Indies Next List Pick, an Indies Introduce Top Title, a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection, an Amazon Editor’s Pick, and a Kobo Book of the Month. Children of the Wind, the second installment in the Daughters of the Lamp series, will follow in
June 2024.
