Katie Coyle grew up in a small suburban town in New Jersey. The first story she ever wrote was about a girl with a pet dolphin - eventually the dolphin turned into a dog, and the third-person narration unceremoniously switched over to first-person. The story was never finished. However, since then, she has spent countless hours dreaming up tales about the weird and wonderful things that happen to teenage girls. She has an MFA from the University of Pittsburgh, and spends her free time buying books she doesn't need and crying at science-fiction television shows. VIVAN VERSUS THE APOCALYPSE was the joint winner of the Hot Key Books Young Writers Prize 2013. You can follow Katie at: www.katiecoyle.tumblr.com or on Twitter: @krcoyle
