Courtney Turcotte Bond proudly grew up in both Lawrence, Kansas and Dayton, Ohio. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Integrated Language Arts Education, a master’s degree in Education, and has been a high school English teacher since 2004. Having eclectic interests, she is a freelance writer, poet, and blogger, but she’s had a dream to write a book since she was eight years old. Thirty years later, that dream has finally become a reality with her debut novel, Breathtaking. When she is not writing or teaching, you can find Courtney running her cake pop business (Bondbons), singing along to every lyric at a concert, or traveling the country. She resides in northeast Kansas with her husband and two kids.
Her least favorite household chore is the laundry / She writes in cursive most of the time / Her favorite place to visit is NYC / She watches Wheel of Fortune like it’s the Super Bowl / She has never binged watched a show / She could eat a pb+j everyday for the rest of her life / A plant-based meal is her jam / She almost majored in psychology
