About

I’m the New York Times bestselling author of many books. My latest is my first rom-com, Not Your Average Hot Guy, with a sequel, The Date from Hell, coming in April 2022, both from St. Martin’s Griffin. I’m also hard at work on lots of other projects, some secret for now.

My previous work includes: the first official Stranger Things novel, Suspicious Minds, which tells the story of Eleven’s mother; the young adult Lois Lane series (Fallout, Double Down, and Triple Threat), which brings the iconic comic book character front and center in her own YA novels; and the Cirque American series (Girl on a Wire, Girl Over Paris, and Girl in the Shadows), about daredevil heroines who discover magic and mystery lurking under the big top. I also co-wrote the middle grade series the Supernormal Sleuthing Service with my husband author Christopher Rowe, and I created Dead Air, a serialized mystery and scripted podcast written with Carrie Ryan and Rachel Caine.

I have also written for Publishers Weekly, Locus Magazine, Salon, and the Los Angeles Times, among many others. I am a member of George R.R. Martin’s Wild Cards Consortium.

I live in a hundred-year-old house in Lexington, Kentucky, with Christopher and our monsters, er, pets: Stella the Cat, HRH; Phoebe the Cat, HRH2; Puck the Dog, INC; Izzy the Dog-Girl, VIP; and Sally the Other-Dog-Girl, ESQ. (Get to know them over on the Meet the Pets page or on Instagram.)

I love hearing from readers, so please visit the contact page. If you’d like to book me for a speaking engagement or school visit, that’s great too. You can also find me on twitter as @gwenda, on Instagram as @gwendabond, or sign up for my author newsletter. Members of the media, bloggers, or others who need a third-person bio or images, can find them on the press kit page for both me and me and Christopher.

My children and YA’s work is represented by Jennifer Laughran of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency, and my work for adults is represented by Kate McKean of the Howard Morhaim Literary Agency. For film/TV rights inquiries, release contact Olivia Burgher at William Morris Endeavor.
