Kat Cho is the New York Times and international bestselling author of the Gumiho duology and Once Upon a K-Prom. She loves to incorporate her Korean heritage in her writing, especially if it involves describing food. She likes anything that encourages nerding out, including reading, K-dramas, K-pop and anime.

Kat Cho used to hide books under the bathroom sink and then sneak in there to read after bedtime. Her parents pretended not to know. This helped when she decided to write a dinosaur time-travel novel at the tender age of nine. Sadly, that book was not published. She currently lives in NYC and spends her free time trying to figure out what kind of puppy to adopt.

I was the co-host of the Write or Die podcast where we interview writers and talk about their long (often difficult) journeys to publication!
I am represented by the amazing Beth Phelan at Gallt & Zacker.
