Gabrielle Zevin is the author of award-winning books for young adults including Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac and Elsewhere. Her books for adults include The Hole We're In and Margarettown. She was also the screenwriter for Conversations with Other Women, which received an Independent Spirit Award nomination. Zevin didn't always know she wanted to write fiction, but she has always loved typing. That comes in handy, because writing novels involves a lot of typing.
