Rainbow Rowell writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults (ATTACHMENTS and LANDLINE). Sometimes she writes about teenagers (ELEANOR & PARK, FANGIRL and THE SIMON SNOW BOOKS.). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she's not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don't really matter in the big scheme of things.

She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.

I *do* accept bribes. Please make all your friends read Carry On. 😉

I think that if I *were* going to write a sequel to any of my books, it would be to Carry On. There are so many loose ends and interesting things yet to explore. Does Simon get his magic back? Does he ever find out about his parents? Could Baz get any dreamier?(less)

Thank you! This is lovely to hear!

I have SO MANY SECRETS right now. I'm just about to announce my next project. It's totally different from anything I've done before, and I'm having the best time working on it.

I also have secret news about an existing book; I'm VERY CLOSE to announcing this one, too.

And -- this project I can talk about -- I have a graphic novel coming in 2019, a collaboration with Faith Erin Hicks. This has been delayed a bit because both Faith and I had other deadlines. But my script is done, and it's the next thing in Faith's queue! (less)

A new short story about Reagan -- from FANGIRL

Do you remember Reagan? From Fangirl? Cath’s no-nonsense, secretly soft roommate?

Reagan has always been one of my favorite supporting characters — so this year, for the holidays, I decided to give her her very own story … with her very own romance.

IF THE FATES ALLOW is available today, exclusively in ebook and audiobook. Read or listen here.

The story takes place last year, on Christmas. Reagan

“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”
Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park

“Holding Eleanor's hand was like holding a butterfly. Or a heartbeat. Like holding something complete, and completely alive.”
Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park

“I don’t trust anybody. Not anybody. And the more that I care about someone, the more sure I am they’re going to get tired of me and take off.”
Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl
