Amy Goldman Koss
Amy Goldman Koss assumed that when she grew up she’d get some miserable job and would only get to do anything interesting in her wee bits of free time. Happily, things turned out differently. Amy writes (almost daily) in her sunny, triangular office 27 steps from her sliding back door. She has written 14 teen novels, four picture books, a whole slew of newspaper articles, and countless shopping lists. Her books, including THE GIRLS, SIDE EFFECTS, and POISON IVY, have been named to numerous Best Books of the Year lists and honored with various state reading awards. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Amy now lives in Los Angeles with her family, pets, and phobias.
