About the Author:

STEPHANIE PERKINS has always worked with books―first as a bookseller, then as a librarian, and now as a novelist. She's the author of the international bestsellers Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door, as well as Isla and the Happily Ever After. My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories is her first anthology. Stephanie and her husband live in the mountains of North Carolina.

Gayle Forman is an investigative journalist who's traveled the world to report for such publications as the New York Times Magazine, The Nation, Glamour, Elle, Details, Travel & Leisure, Budget Travel, Jane, and Seventeen. Gayle and her husband, Nick Tucker, are back at home (for now) in New York City with their baby daughter, Willa.

David Levithan is the author of The Lover's Dictionary and many acclaimed young-adult novels, including the New York Times bestselling Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist (with Rachel Cohn), which was adapted into a popular movie. He is also an editorial director at Scholastic.

Kelly Link is the author of two collections, Stranger Things Happen, and Magic For Beginners (one of Time Magazine's Best Books of the Year). Stories from her collections have won the Nebula, Hugo, World Fantasy, Tiptree, and Locus awards, and her work has recently appeared in A Public Space, Firebirds Rising, and Best American Short Stories 2005. Link and Gavin J. Grant started Small Beer Press in 2000. They have published the zine Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet (“Tiny, but celebrated” ― Washington Post) for ten years. An anthology, The Best of Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet, will be published this autumn.

STEPHANIE PERKINS has always worked with books―first as a bookseller, then as a librarian, and now as a novelist. She's the author of the international bestsellers Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door, as well as Isla and the Happily Ever After. My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories is her first anthology. Stephanie and her husband live in the mountains of North Carolina.

RAINBOW ROWELL writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults (Attachments and Landline). Sometimes she writes about teenagers (Eleanor & Park, Fangirl and Carry On). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she's not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don't really matter in the big scheme of things.

She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.



New York Times best selling young adult author Laini Taylor contributed to My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories.

Review:

“Rich language and careful, efficient character development make the collection an absorbing and sophisticated read, each story surprisingly fresh despite the constraints of a shared theme. It's that rarest of short story collections: There's not a single lump of coal.” ―Kirkus (starred review)

“There's no shortage of cozy setups for holiday romance in this captivating collection of short stories...a rare seasonal treat.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Holiday canoodling stories by twelve of the top YA authors? It's a Christmas miracle! This is the substantive stuff of dream stockings: a rollicking, blush-inducing, memorable holiday collection of breezy, bite-sized stories perfect a snug evening next to the fire.” ―Booklist (starred review)

“Never mind the winter holidays; booktalk this title all year round.” ―School Library Journal (starred review)

“Stunning and diverse, this holiday anthology is pure magic. This is what all anthologies should aspire to be.” ―RT Book Review, 4.5 stars, "Top Pick"

“This collection of holiday stories reminds readers that while the season can be painful, it's also a time of hope. It's a marvelous collection, certain to earn a treasured spot on many Y.A. shelves.” ―The New York Times Book Review

My True Love Gave to Me is a plummy treat... Its best stories are worth savoring long past the seasonal expiration date and even beyond the teen years.” ―The Washington Post

“Satisfying and just sweet enough, like a good Christmas cookie, this will obviously appeal to those readers who get out the holiday decorations the day after Halloween, and it may even convert a Scrooge or two.” ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
