Edward Underhill

Winner of mentorship with PAL member Nicole Maggi

Edward Underhill has been writing stories since he was a kid. He grew up in Wisconsin and now resides in Los Angeles, where he writes music for animated TV shows by day, and words for teenagers by night. Like his main character, he is also trans, and hopes to one day share his stories with queer and trans kids who don’t see themselves in books every day.
