Back to Meet the Authors

While growing up in New Jersey, Siobhan Vivian got into trouble for such things as constantly talking out of turn, bringing a stray dog into school in a shopping cart, passing notes to her friends, telling jokes, sneaking out and not doing her homework. Vivian has been an editor of several New York Times best-selling novels at Alloy Entertainment and a scriptwriter for The Disney Channel. She currently teaches Writing Youth Literature at the University of Pittsburgh. She and Jenny Han have written “Burn for Burn” (Simon & Schuster).
