About this author

An author and travel writer, Kirsten Hubbard has hiked ancient ruins in Cambodia, dived with wild dolphins in Belize (one totally looked her in the eye), slept in a Slovenian jail cell, and navigated the Wyoming badlands (without a compass) in search of transcendent backdrops for her novels. She lives in California.

Kirsten is the author of YA novels LIKE MANDARIN and WANDERLOVE, available now from Delacorte Press/Random House Children's Books; CLOUDFOREST and RED ROCKS, coming from Egmont USA in 2016 & 2017; and MG novel WATCH THE SKY, coming from Disney-Hyperion in 2015.

“Kindness’ covers all of my political beliefs. No need to spell them out. I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.”
Roger Ebert, Life Itself

Brigita Great to see you visited the Celica hostel in Ljubljana. That's where I'm from. :-) Also, thanks for friending my Bridie Hall GR profile, that's my YA pen name. Best wishes.


Oksana  *Bookaholic* Yeah, are you working on anything new?? So excited - I found a new favorite authoress! :)


TheBookofJules Thank you so much for accepting my friend request! (Again actually! I used to be FREEBIRD but ended up creating a new profile. Momentary insanity. You know the drill ;)). I've been thinking... I just must know, are you working on anything new? Are you allowed to say? I m sure there are secrecy contracts and all those things, but I hope you are. You are a fantastic writer and I enjoyed both of your books immensely!


Lawrence Hey Kirsten...thanks for adding me as your friend.


Savannah Kristen, thank you for the friendship.
