Hi, there! I'm Stephanie Perkins, and I'm a New York Times and international bestselling author of books for teenagers and for adults with teenage hearts. I was born in South Carolina, raised in Arizona, and I attended universities in California and Georgia. Since 2004, I've lived in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina.

I've always worked with books—first as a bookseller, then as a librarian, now as a novelist and editor. My best friend is my husband Jarrod. Every room of our house is painted a different color of the rainbow, and we share it with a feisty cat named Mr. Tumnus.

For more information, please check out my FAQ.

Find me online: 8tracksGoodreadsInstagram, and Twitter.


I love receiving friendly email: steph AT stephanieperkins DOT com

HOWEVER . . . due to the volume of email that I receive, I am no longer able to respond. I'm so sorry. My mother taught me to always send a thank-you note, and I'm sad that I no longer have the time to do this. Your emails are a joy, and I read every single one.

Thank you.

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

For questions about the rights to my work or any other related business concern, please contact my agent, Kate Testerman:

For interviews, events, and other publicity concerns, please contact my publicist, Lauren Donovan:
