Bio: Stephanie Perkins was born in South Carolina, raised in Arizona, attended universities in San Francisco and Atlanta, and now lives in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. She shares her home, which is almost 100 years old, with her best friend and husband Jarrod and a cat named Mr. Tumnus.
She has always worked with books—first as a bookseller, then as a librarian, and now as a novelist. On weekdays, you'll find Stephanie at her desk, typing away, downing cups of coffee and tea. On the weekend, you'll find her at the movies, waiting for the actors to kiss. She believes all novels and films should have more kissing.
