Becky Albertalli is a clinical psychologist who has had the privilege of conducting therapy with dozens of smart, weird, irresistible teenagers. She also served for seven years as co-leader of a support group for gender nonconforming children in Washington, DC.

Albertalli attended college in Connecticut and majored in psychology before moving to Washington, D.C. and gaining a doctorate in clinical psychology. She worked as a psychologist until 2012—when her first son was born—and subsequently decided to try writing a novel.

She now lives with her family in Atlanta.
