Justina Chen Headley wrote her first fifty-page novel when she was eight years old.

She is the winner of the Asian Pacific American Award for Literature for her debut novel, Nothing but the Truth (and a few white lies), which was also a Borders' Original Voices nominee, BookSense pick, and NYPL Book for the Teen Age. Her most recent novel, GIRL OVERBOARD, is a Junior Library Guild Premier Selection, and Publishers Weekly writes, "Headley crafts a tale that will stand out in the crowd by offering a good dose of girl power and an intriguing family backstory."

After graduating from Stanford University with honors, Justina worked as a marketing executive at Microsoft. She now lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and two children.
