Robin Wasserman grew up in suburban Philadelphia. Like most only children with terrifying hair, no pets, and coke bottle glasses, she says she had a lot of time on my own, most of it spent imagining herself into a story. The rest of her time was spent begging her parents for a puppy.
Once she grew up, she moved to Brooklyn to edit children's books... then to Los Angeles to study the history of science... then back to Brooklyn, where she's been ever since, writing and procrastinating and sampling the borough's ample variety of ice-cream flavors.
Robin's writing has appeared in Tin House, The New York Times, TheAtlantic.com, and The LA Review of Books. Her books for young adults include The Waking Dark, The Book of Blood and Shadow, and the Seven Deadly Sins series, which was adapted into a television miniseries. Robin teaches on the faculty of the low-residency MFA program at Southern New Hampshire University, she's a MacDowell Fellow, and is still working on that puppy. [Source]
