I’ve lived all over the world, raised in a family with eleven brothers and sisters. I spent my early childhood in Hawaii and the rest of my growing-up years trying to figure out a way to get back there, with stops in South Korea, Michigan and Germany along the way. Before writing fiction, I tried my hand at many things, including war game simulation and youth development research. But I decided it was much more fun to work on stories than statistics.

These days, I still love Hawaii, but have found my home under the moody skies of the Pacific Northwest.

I had a chance to see some footage and it looks amazing. Estimated release is early next year. (If you want to see some photos from the set, check out #nervenyc on Twitter.)

It's difficult to write a review for an A.S. King book because I don't want to give anything away before another reader's had the chance to experience it.

No one else writes YA like A.S. King. Every book is wildly different, wonderfully weird, and ma

“we've learned an interesting rule about fame. Those who seem desperate for it are the people that others least want to see.”

“Why should I pay to watch when I can be paid to play?”
Jeanne Ryan, Nerve

“I need to use my mind in a way that slows the out-of-control beating in my chest. The darkness around us could be anywhere, anytime. I could be alive or dead. Okay, I choose alive. While I’m at it, I choose the darkness to be a gentle blanket on a moonless night, where I rest a few feet from a boy who’s warm and sweet. When he holds me, his heart beats strong with what I tell myself is passion, not fear.”
Jeanne Ryan, Nerve
