Author Biography

Patricia McCormick is a critically acclaimed author for young adults. Her debut novel, Cut, captivated teenagers and adults alike, becoming a bestseller in America and winning numerous awards. This was followed by the equally applauded My Brother's Keeper. Patricia holds a master's degree in creative writing, and has contributed regularly to The New York Times. She lives in New York City with her husband and two children, and says the coolest thing she's done lately (perhaps the coolest thing she's ever done) was to go rappelling off a cliff in the Blue Mountains of Australia.
