About Stephanie Books On Writing News Extras


Well, hello! I'm Stephanie Perkins, and I write novels for teens (and for adults who aren't afraid to admit that teen books are awesome). I was born in South Carolina, raised in Arizona, attended universities in San Francisco and Atlanta, and now I live in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina.

My best friend is my husband Jarrod. Our house is almost a hundred years old, and every room is painted a different color of the rainbow. We share it with a cat named Mr. Tumnus.

I've always worked with books—first as a bookseller, then as a librarian, and now as a novelist. On weekdays, you'll find me at my desk, typing away, downing cups of coffee and tea. On the weekend, you'll find me at the movies, waiting for the actors to kiss. I believe all novels and films should have more kissing.

For more information, please check out my F.A.Q.


I love receiving friendly email! You can reach me at:

HOWEVER . . . due to the volume of email I receive, I am no longer able to respond. I'm sorry. My mother taught me to always send a thank-you note, and I feel incredibly sad (and guilty) that I am no longer able to do this. Your emails are an honor and a joy, and I read every single one. I wish that I had the time to write you all back, but I do not. I hope you will understand. Thank you.

If you have a question, please try me on Twitter. My feed fills quickly, so often you'll have to ask me more than once. I'm sorry! Keep trying. I don't mind. Or try my assistant Martha Thimble. She'll usually reply faster.
