I'm a YA writer who grew up in Berkeley, California, which is a quirky sort of a place with a ton of wonderful bookstores. My very first job was working in one of those bookstores.

Passions of mine include mental health advocacy, social justice, and sports of all kinds. I currently live in Northern California with my family and our wild menagerie of pets. CHARM & STRANGE is my debut novel.

Stephanie Kuehn recommends
What's Coming to Me (2022)
Francesca Padilla
"Nuanced, complex, and deeply emotional, Padilla's novel skillfully delves into the personal impact of trauma and loss, as well as the damage violence and inequity can inflict on a larger community. The high-stakes narrative, as told by a grieving girl desperate to both flee and find meaning in a place that's taken so much from her, is equal parts tense, heartbreaking, and ultimately healing. A must-read."
Strange Creatures (2021)
Phoebe North
"Haunting, heartbreaking, and beautifully crafted, Strange Creatures is a story woven with truth and myth, sorrow and loss, and the fundamental belief that we are all defined by the bonds we share with those who love us and the faith we hold in ourselves."
The Good Girls (2020)
Claire Eliza Bartlett
"Brimming with suspense, along with a compelling cast of suspects, Bartlett's latest offers up a gripping, page-turning mystery about small town secrets and the reasons girls keep them."
