About Stephanie Books On Writing News Extras


Hi, there! I'm Stephanie Perkins, and I'm the New York Times and international bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and Isla and the Happily Ever After, as well as the editor of the romantic holiday anthology My True Love Gave to Me. 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.

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.
