Kris Dinnison learned to read when she was five years old. She grew up reading books nobody else had read and listening to music nobody else had heard of and thinking she was weird, which she kind of was. She spent nearly two decades as a teacher and librarian while dreaming of becoming a writer. She lives in Spokane, Washington with her husband and a geriatric cat named Moon Pie. Her first novel, You and Me and Him, comes out July 7, 2015 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
