"Highly original and charmingly weird." -Dinah Stevenson, editor Clarion Books
Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic writes books in the San Francisco Bay Area surrounded by a few kids, a few cats, and one husband.
She is the author of SUFFERING SUCCOTASH: A PICKY EATER'S QUEST TO UNDERSTAND WHY WE HATE THE FOODS WE HATE (2012); THE END OF SOMETHING WONDERFUL (PB 2019); HELLO, STAR (PB 2021); THE LEAGUE OF PICKY EATERS (MG 2021); WHAT IS HOPE (PB 2023); HUMMINGBIRD SEASON (MG 2024), TOUCH THE SKY (PB 2024), and WHEN BREATHING IS TOO LOUD (PB 2025).
Stephanie still sleeps with the teddy bear she had as a baby, she has a bellybutton phobia, and she was born with six wisdom teeth. She doesn't think this makes her any wiser than the average chewer but it does give her a biting sense of humor. Her favorite words are "knelt" and "cloak."
She is is represented by Jordan Hamessley at New Leaf Literary & Media, Inc. You can email Stephanie directly at SVWL22 at gmail dot com.
