When I’m not reading, writing, or teaching, I hang out with my husband Arnulfo and our two boys, Liam Miguel and Ethan Andrés. In the scraps of time that remain, I also like to run (I did the Houston Marathon in 2007 and the Chicago Marathon in 2009), bake (but let’s don’t revive the “Cookie Girl” nickname, please), watch movies, work in my garden, and destroy my mom in long-distance games of Scrabble.

ALA 2016 in Orlando broughtthe sweetness ofconnecting with fellow authors and amazing librarians as well as the career high of receiving a 2016 Printz Honor Award forOut of Darkness.

Out of Darkness by Ashley Hope Pérez
"This may be one of the most brilliant, depressing books I have ever read. This past year I read "A Little Life" by Hanya Yanagihara and I thought: "This is it...this is the most depressing book I will ever read." But no, it was this. And it was wo..." Read more of this review »

“that he’d gone all the way with her out back of the cafeteria. We didn’t believe him, but we liked”
Ashley Hope Pérez, Out of Darkness

“I just sit there. I should be running after her, trying to patch things up, but the thing is that I’m scared to be in the rush of people in the hall. I can’t stand to feel all those bodies move against me. I don’t want anybody to touch me. Because there’s no way to know what they’re thinking, what they would do to you if there was nothing to stop them.”
Ashley Hope Pérez, What Can't Wait

“Mrs. Garza made us read this poem in class that said “April is the cruelest month.” Everybody else thought that was stupid, how was a month going to be cruel? But to me it makes perfect sense. It’s cruel because the whole world turns pretty and green while everything in your life is going sour. And you can’t blame anybody but yourself.”
Ashley Hope Pérez, What Can't Wait
