I am Katie Finn, which is the pen (and middle!) name of author Morgan Matson. I was born in New York City and grew up there and in Greenwich, Connecticut. I have a brother, Jason, who is now a lawyer and who would like me to go on record as saying he is nothing like the brother characters in my books.
I attended Occidental College (not a dental school) and then The New School (actually very old) where I received my MFA in Writing for Children. I also received a second MFA (because, why not) in Writing for Film and Television from USC.
I am the author of the Top 8 trilogy – Top 8, What’s Your Status, and Unfriended. These books follow Madison MacDonald and her group of friends through Facebook-hacking mysteries, prom heists, and social-media vengeance plots.
I am also the author of the Broken Hearts & Revenge Trilogy. The first book in the series, Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend is available now.
I have never plotted revenge on anyone (who didn’t deserve it). I live in Los Angeles, with my dog Murphy, in a house I wish was a lot closer to the beach.
