Tamara Ireland Stone spent nearly two decades in the technology industry before she began writing fiction. She loved her first career but finds writing for kids and teens especially rewarding. Her New York Times bestseller Every Last Word won the Cybils Young Adult Fiction Award and the Georgia Peach Book Award, and was shortlisted for the Northern California Book Award. Little Do We Know won the NCIBA Golden Poppy Award for Young Adult Fiction, and her debut novel Time Between Us has been published in over twenty
languages. Click’d, the first book in her middle-grade series, is a Sunshine State Young Readers Award pick, a Kids’ Indie Next pick, a Truman Award Nominee, and an NCIBA Golden Poppy nominee. Tamara lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and is a proud nerd, vinyl collector, and movie lover. She burns everything she cooks.
