About this author

I write YA. I eat Junior Mints. Sometimes I go crazy and do both at the same time. My novels, published through Harper Teen are: PIVOT POINT, its sequel SPLIT SECOND (Feb 2014), and THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US (a contemporary novel). I also have two more contemporaries, ON THE FENCE coming out July 1, 2014, and THE FILL-IN BOYFRIEND coming out the summer of 2015. My agent is the talented and funny Michelle Wolfson.

Cathryn So please excuse the fangirling that is about to take place. I LOVE YOUR BOOKS!!!! I just finished Split Second and it was wonderful. I loved the continuation of Addison and Trevor's story and Laini and Connor's story was fantastic. I know that this series is only supposed to have two books but I'm really hoping you will change your mind and write another (or several) more in this world. I loved it so much!!!


Eugenia Dear Kasie,

Thank you so much for accepting my friend request :)
I am very much looking forward to reading and discovering more of your work.

Very best wishes for more books in the future,
Genie

I've reread TDBU for 10 times already????? And pivot point point for 5+ times already???? You see, you totally mesmerized me with those novels and now I'm totally in love with those<3 Stay awesome, Kasie!!

161 days to go for Split Second!!!

PS: I swear that if ever you'll visit Philippines I'll give you a sack of M&Ms peanut butter!!! <33

Thank you so much. I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know. It means a lot to me. Especially because I'm drafting right now and feeling a little blah about it. :) So I'm glad to know that people actually like some of my finished products. Ha.

Lily After finishing reading The Distance Between Us yesterday, I was left with an overwhelming urge to let you know how much I love and appreciate your books; both The Distance Between Us, and Pivot Point, which I devoured in two days.

Especially in a time where Young Adult and New Adult novels have quickly become a dime in a dozen it is so refreshing to stumble across books that are original, witty, funny, and still hold that special touch of magic.

There has been an upsurge of YA and NA novels with extremely unhealthy portrayals of relationships (I won't elaborate on that, because I don't want to disregard any books or their respective authors in any way) and it has been a true pleasure to find that it is still possible to find novels with genuine, harmonious relationships. I'm so picky with relationship development aswell, and I abhor both "insta-love", as well as romances that are overly corny, but you really managed to beautifully capture the essence of YA relationships - both that fragile state of slowly falling in love, and the slight uncertitude in the beginning of a relationship - and I really, really loved that.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can't wait for your second installment of Pivot Point, and On the Fence.


Celine Thanks for accepting! I loved Pivot Point and The Distance Between Us, and the wait for Split Second and On The Fence will surely kill me. (thanks for that!)

:) Thank you!!! I'm so happy you enjoyed it. Your reviews/comments always make me smile.


Kaylee Magic Just finished reading The Distance Between Us. Got no sleep last night. Drank some hot chocolate. And FREAKING LOVED IT! <33333 Thank you so much for writing exactly the kind of fun, adorable, and snarky contemporary book I needed this summer!!!

So you should know that I'm even more of a fan girl of you than I was before. Yeah. Cool (':

(I'm totally hyperventilating inside.)


Lara Thank you for accepting my friend request :D. I loved Pivot Point and I can't wait for the sequel!
