Abigail Drake has spent her life traveling the world, and collecting stories wherever she visited. She majored in Japanese and Economics in college and worked in import/export and as an ESL teacher before she committed herself full time to writing. She writes in several genres, including women’s fiction and young adult fiction. Abigail teaches writing classes for children, and is a member of Romance Writers of America, Three Rivers Romance Writers, Contemporary Romance Writers, Women’s Fiction Writers, The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Novelists Inc., Mindful Writers, and PennWriters. 

Abigail is a trekkie, a book hoarder, the master of the Nespresso machine, a red wine drinker, and the mother of three boys (probably the main reason for all of the red wine). A Labrador named Capone is the most recent addition to her family, and she blogs about him as a way of maintaining what little sanity she has left.

Abigail was awarded an honorable mention for her book Love, Chocolate, and a Dog Named Al Capone in the Writer’s Digest Self-Published E-book Awards, 2019. She is the winner of the prestigious 2017 Prism Award for her book Traveller, and the International Digital Award for her young adult novel, Tiger Lily. In addition, she was named a finalist in the Golden Pen, the Golden Leaf, the Dante Rossetti Book Award, the Stiletto, and the Cygnus Award for Science Fiction and Speculative Fiction.
