E. Lockhart

E. Lockhart is the author of 9 novels, including We Were Liars, which was a break-out success and instant New York Times bestseller upon publication in 2014. The novel was named one of NPR’s Best Books of 2014, a Best YA Book of 2014 by Time, the sole YA title to make it onto Amazon’s Best 20 Books of the Year, Amazon’s #1 YA Book of the Year, the GoodReads Choice Best Young Adult Novel of 2014, a Kirkus Review Best Book of 2014, and a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2014.

Lockhart earned a doctorate in English literature at Columbia University before embarking on her writing career. She writes for younger readers under the name Emily Jenkins. A captivating storyteller, Lockhart lectures on techniques for writing fiction, gender and reading, books for young people and their function in society, and the power of unreliable narrators. Her wit and insight make her a popular choice for both adult and young adult audiences, as well as for libraries and community reads programs.

Lockhart’s novel The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks won a Michael L. Printz Honor Award and was a National Book Award finalist. Its feminist themes have led Lockhart to speak about gender politics to groups of girls across the country. Lockhart is also the author of Dramarama, Fly on the Wall, and the popular Ruby Oliver series, which begins with the novel The Boyfriend List. She resides in Brooklyn and shares her office space with a maniac cat.
