Kristin Elizabeth Clark lives and writes in San Francisco, Ca. She is a believer in and an advocate for human kindness. As such, she pretty much tries to stay off of social media. Kristin writes, teaches workshops, and speaks on panels about social justice, diversity, and writing for children and young adults. She’s also host and founder of The Ocean Beach Poet’s Society.
Her young adult debut, Freakboy, was published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR) in 2013. It received three starred reviews, and was named to several best-of lists, including the Top 10 Rainbow List by the American Library Association, and the Bank Street Best Books for Children.
The praise she is most humbled by however comes from the readers, both trans* and cis, who write to tell her that the book has changed, and in some cases even saved, their lives.
Her newest book, Jess, Chunk, and the Road Trip to Infinity publishes November 8, 2016.
