Kate Karyus Quinn is a chapstick addict with a love for live theater and a BFA from Niagara University to prove it. 

After growing up in the suburbs of Buffalo, NY, Kate left her hometown for Southern California and film school, where she earned an MFA in Film and Television Production from Chapman University. 

She currently lives in Buffalo, New York with her husband, three children, and a 100 pound dog. 

Kate is first and foremost an avid reader and unapologetic booknerd. Although, she mostly reads YA and romance, she often samples different genres in her constant search for the next great read.
