Daniel Handler is the author of seven novels, including Why We Broke Up, All The Dirty Parts, and Bottle Grove. As Lemony Snicket, he is the author of far too many books for children, including Poison for Breakfast, the four-volume All The Wrong Questions, and the thirteen-volume A Series of Unfortunate Events, which has been adapted for screen and television. He lives in San Francisco with the illustrator Lisa Brown, to whom he is married, and their son.
Nic Stone is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin, the novel that launched her career in 2017 and encourages readers of all ages to examine the biases in their own lives and to have honest discussions about race in today’s world. Nic’s mission is to create books and stories that speak to kids underrepresented in YA literature today—and her aim is to not only create windows in which young people are introduced to new perspectives, but also mirrors in which children see their experiences and identities fully represented. Born and raised in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, Nic grew up with a wide range of cultures, religions, and backgrounds. All of her novels have been embraced by teens and adults and have been the recipients of numerous accolades, awards, and starred reviews. In addition to Dear Martin, her books include Dear Justyce and the middle-grade novel, Clean Getaway, both New York Times bestsellers; Odd One Out; Jackpot; the Black Panther novels, Shuri and Shuri: The Vanished; as well as Blackout and Fast Pitch. A Spelman College graduate, Nic lives in Atlanta with her family.
