Author Bio: Gayle Forman

Alex yesterday mentioned that, when we did this book almost THREE YEARS AGO, we never did an author bio on Gayle Forman, mainly because we hadn't gotten into the schedule that we've gotten into these days.  So, why don't I go ahead and tell you a little about our author this week.

She's the one on the left ;)

Forman actually started her writing career with Seventeen Magazine, then moved on to other magazines like Elle and Cosmopolitan.  It was on a trip around the world with her husband in 2002 to that she started to write her first book, You Can't Get There From Here.  She published her first young adult novel, Sisters in Sanity, in 2007.

But of course, it was her 2009 novel, If I Stay, that really took off, winning a multitude of awards including the NAIBA Book of the Year award.  It was in 2014 that it was released as a movie with Chloe Grace Mortz starring as Mia (see above).

Foreman has also released a three book series, Just One Day, Just One Year, and Just One Night and she had one more book come out today called I Was Here.

She also has a webpage that you can visit, a facebook page, and a twitter.
