Dito (rhymes with Cheetoh) Abbott once spent three and half years animating a stop motion music video for his band, Too Many Drummers, in his garage. It featured a shot-by-shot remake of the exploding amp scene from Back to the Future (but with robots in a space junkyard, of course). After completing such an epic project, he thought writing novels would be easy. He was wrong. Dito was born in Puerto Rico, grew up in Saudi Arabia, and sailed around the world with his family by the age of twenty-seven. His debut YA Fantasy novel, Debunked, draws on his love for adventure, googly-eyed slime beasts, and sarcastic swords of legend. He lives in Phoenix with his wife, kids, and an invisible dragon named Clyde.
