Draven's early life was a hot mess, but during her childhood in West Texas she learned to solder, grew a deep and unwavering hatred for roosters, and participated in everything from one act play to the school's science team. She graduated Valedictorian from her high school, which is made less impressive by only having twelve in her graduating class.
She attended the University of Texas at Austin, majoring in rhetoric and writing and minoring in business. She had every intention to go to law school, which she would have hated, until she was diagnosed with cancer at 20. After beating cancer and graduating, she took a nice, quiet office job in Austin and began writing her first book.
Her debut novel, Things We Inherit, was released in June of 2023. Her second novel, Eris, will be released in 2024. Draven enjoys writing dark, contemporary fantasy/paranormal novels with strong, complicated female leads. Although she loves a happy ending in the romance novels she reads (ironically her favorite genre), she makes no promises for those she writes.
She currently lives in Austin with her fiance, cat, and an overwhelming number of books and video game systems. In her free time she enjoys playing video games, drinking fancy lemonades, watching rugby, and exploring renaissance festivals.
