BIO
Biography

Stephanie is an award-nominated writer and editor based out of Toronto, Canada. When she’s not writing, reading, or coming up with cringe-worthy puns, she can be found curled up with her snuggly cat that she is very allergic to.

Oh My Gods! and ParaNorthern and the Chaos Bunny A-hop-calypse are out now from Clarion/Etch (formerly HMH Kids). A sequel to Oh My Gods! will be out in 2022 and Pillow Talk, her first YA graphic novel, will be out in 2023. Find out more about her at stephaniecooke.ca.
