As an author of young adult fiction, LK Gardner-Griffie enjoys acclaim as a two-time winner of the Pearson Prize Teen Choice Award for Misfit McCabe (2009) and Nowhere Feels Like Home (2010), the first two books in her Misfit McCabe series. Her love of the young adult category is long standing and she thrives on exploring the tumultuous emotions and life choices of the teen years.

Daughter to a rocket scientist and an artist, LK combines the traits of both into a quirky yet pragmatic writer. She began to foster her love of writing after reading Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and discovering she had a great deal in common with the character Jo. The making up of stories, dramatic feelings, and a quick temper were enough for her to know she and Jo would have been kindred spirits. Her love of writing has grown over the years, along with the list of projects she plans to tackle.

In addition to writing, LK holds down a full-time job with an international transportation company as a process and efficiency expert. Her leisure time is spent with her husband sharing a love of music, singing, and college baseball. She writes into the night with the help of her three long-haired miniature dachshunds.
