Eva V. Gibson is the author of several critically acclaimed Young Adult novels featuring grim themes and flawed, complicated characters. Her debut, TOGETHER WE CAUGHT FIRE, was named a Bank Street 2021 Best Children’s Book of the Year, while her sophomore novel, WHERE SECRETS LIE, was featured as a Booklist Review of the Day, a Booklist Best New Books selection, and received a starred review from Booklist. Her horror debut, FRIGHTMARES, was honored with a 2023 Edgar Award nomination by Mystery Writers of America.

A bookworm since early childhood, she has routinely gravitated to the dark and gritty, reading, then writing, stories with grim themes and flawed, complicated characters. She has very little trouble expressing herself via the written word, except when it comes to biographies. She lives in Northern Virginia with her family, and spends most of her time brooding, baking, creating, and parenting, awaiting the day her kids read her books with equal parts excitement and trepidation.
