Gabrielle Zevin

Gabrielle Zevin

Gabrielle Zevin is the internationally bestselling and critically acclaimed author of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry; the prizewinning children's book, Elsewhere; and several other novels. Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow is being developed into a feature film by Temple Hill and Paramount Studios, and the movie version of A.J. Fikry, for which Zevin wrote the adaptation, is currently in production in Massachusetts. Zevin was born in New York and is the daughter of a Korean mom and an Eastern European Jewish dad, who both spent their careers working in computers. Her dad wanted her to work in computers, too, and this book is probably as close as she will ever come. She is a screenwriter, an occasional critic and a graduate of Harvard University. Zevin currently splits her time between Los Angeles and Stardew Valley, where she owns a farm on a once rocky plot of land.
