Kim DeRose spent childhood summers holed up in her bedroom, devouring books and writing stories (a.k.a. retelling famous fairytales, which she was convinced her local bookstore would publish). She is now a YA writer living in Brooklyn, NY.

When Kim isn’t writing, she can be found reading, geeking out over her favorite obsessions (Twin Peaks, Harry Potter, and Gilmore Girls, to name a few) drinking way too much coffee, listening to way too many podcasts, and spending time with her family. She has an MFA in film directing from UCLA and works in digital media.

She is represented by Kathryn Green of Kathryn Green Literary Agency.
