Jen Malone writes books for tweens and teens, including At Your Service, the You're Invited series, and The Sleepover with Simon & Schuster, and Map to the Stars and Wanderlost with HarperCollins. She is a former Hollywood movie executive who once spent a year traveling the world solo, met her husband on the highway (literally), and went into labor with her identical twins while on a rock star's tour bus. These days she saves the drama for her books. She teaches at Boston University and is the Author-in-Residence at both a Boston-area middle school and for the Girl Scouts of Massachusetts.
