Cynthia Hand

Conference Speaker

Cynthia Hand is the New York Times bestselling author of several books for teens, including the UNEARTHLY trilogy, the LADY JANIE series (with fellow authors Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows), THE LAST TIME WE SAY GOODBYE, THE AFTERLIFE OF HOLLY CHASE, THE HOW AND THE WHY, and WITH YOU ALL THE WAY, all published by HarperTeen. Before turning to writing for young adults, she studied literary fiction and earned both an M.F.A. and a Ph.D. in fiction writing (but don't call her Dr. Hand, because that sounds like a cartoon super villain.) She currently resides in Boise, Idaho, with her husband, two kids, two cats, an overly-enthusiastic dog, and a mountain of books.
